Daniel Berkeley Updike (1860–1941) founded the Merrymount Press in 1893, which quickly came to represent the flowering of the Arts and Crafts movement in American book arts. At the same time, the quixotic and patrician Updike championed his vision of the “scholar-printer”—an artist whose work mixes a practical understanding of the printing trade with a deep knowledge of and reverence for the history of the book.
