The Art of the Book - Clare Carpenter


Clare Carpenter is the proprietor of Tiger Food Press in the neighborhood of St. Johns, located smack-dab between the Willamette and Columbia Rivers in Portland, Oregon. Her work is heavily influenced by place and how our landscape is imbued with personal histories. Primarily a letterpress printer, her work blends writing, traditional and contemporary print methods, and humor. Carpenter teaches letterpress and printmaking around the Pacific Northwest and at Oregon College of Art and Craft, where she is also the Studio Manager in Book Arts. She enjoys working with clients on custom job printing, as well as with other artists and writers on collaborative publishing projects.
