Anna Branning & Mara Murphy
Two friends, two antique printing presses, a bunch of ink and a whole lot of paper.
Mara Murphy and Anna Branning, friends and co-workers for many years established dutch door press, a design & letterpress studio, in 2006 in a beautiful Victorian house in San Francisco. They named their press after the entryway to their studio--none other than a "dutch door".
With an affinity for rich color, vintage patterns, natural forms and symmetry they create unique and boldly colored designs for our greeting cards, posters, and invitations. All of their designs are printed by hand on their antique Chandler & Price platen press or an equally lovely Vandercook simple precision 15 proofing press. collection
