Note Cards Block Prints Books Yoshiko Designs Retail Stores Wholesale Clients About Us
Based in the Pacific Northwest, The Arts & Crafts Press was founded in 1996 by Bruce Smith and Yoshiko Yamamoto. We specialize in crafting letterpress printed note cards and limited-edition block prints. We work with the belief that art is not an object, it is a way of life. We strive to create things of beauty by using our head, our heart, and our hands.

Happy Summer!
How are you enjoying your summer?  We're happy to announce my new blockprint "Peace Lanterns." It is based on my watercolor sketch of the lantern-floating ceremony in Seattle, WA.  
Held every year on August 6th (the day the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima in 1945), the event advocates peace and opposes war and violence. To find out more,  please visit the blockprint page. Or please visit our blog, www.artsandcraftspress.wordpress.com.
