Bryan Kring is a graphic designer, letterpress printer and book artist in Oakland, California.

Bryan: When I was in my early twenties I wanted to be a writer. I wanted to be Ernest Hemingway with a bottle of rum in a grass hut on a beach in Cuba. I liked writing but I didn’t have any stories to tell. Instead I saw pictures so I took up painting. I went to art school and filled my home with canvases. When I ran out of space I turned to printmaking. I was seduced by the beauty of ink and paper and explored first etching and then later letterpress printing. Now, in my forties, as I play in the book arts I am having fun connecting the circle back to the writing.
