Liminal Press + Bindery is the studio of Camden M. Richards, located in the Bay Area of Northern California.
I am a book artist and graphic designer who makes artist books and prints that engage others to connect in a deeper way with themselves and their community. Storytelling is at the center of my work, and as a trained graphic designer, design and typography figure heavily into my methods and artistic processes, which also include printmaking, illustration, letterpress printing, and collage. My books and prints are either one-of-a-kind or are published in small editions, have been included in local and national exhibitions and are held in public/library and private collections throughout the country and abroad. I hold a BA in English and Art History from Boston College, an AFA in Graphic Design and an MA in Art and the Book from the Corcoran School of the Arts and Design at George Washington University. In addition to creating work under my studio/press, Liminal Press + Bindery, I am an adjunct faculty member and serve as interim director of the graduate book art program at Mills College at Northeastern University, teach printmaking and letterpress printing workshops at local art studios and in the public schools, and work as a professional graphic designer for a variety of clients in the non profit and B corporation sector.
