Nappanee, IN: Press of the Indiana Kid, 1967. (38) pp. Approximately 1 7/8 x 2 5/8". LIMITED EDITION of 100 copies. Beautiful marbled paper over boards with gilt decorated leather, letterpress, postage stamp, illustrations, printed and bound by James Lamar Weygand, in fine condition. (Bradbury, Press of the Indiana Kid 3).

James Lamar Weygand calls his personal press the Press of the Indiana Kid. His work encompasses all of the book arts: making paper, writing, illustrating, setting type, printing letterpress, and binding. This is a very early publication and quite scarce. It's an account of the world's first airmail flight. There's a fold-out illustration of the envelope carried on the balloon in 1859 along with a commemorative postage stamp.
