Danny Pierce (1920-2014) was book artist who produced books entirely on his own; "he writes the text, handsets the type, cuts the blocks, handprints editions of 25 to 100 copies, and constructs specially designed boxes for each volume, creating works with a deep, personal quality." (Preface to "Danny: 36 years at the Red Door Studio," a 1995 exhibition at the University of Wisconsin).
