Instructor: Laurin Ramsey of Liontail Press Transplanted to Ithaca, NY from Brooklyn in the fall of 2015, Liontail Press is the one-woman design and print operation run by yours truly, a Georgia-born artist and printmaker. My name is Laurin, and I'm convinced that I was born with ink running through my veins. I take immeasurable joy in bringing original, whimsical designs to life with the timeless tactility and charm that is letterpress printing.

It is my hope that evidence of my heart and hand shines through with each unique piece I guide through the press. Here, you can be sure that my utmost care and attention is invested every step of the way. I'm so in love with what I do, and can't wait to share my work with you! Welcome to Liontail Press, where I print it all by hand, with a lion heart.
