LOUFFA PRESS is a micropress that focuses on printing limited edition chapbooks using letterpress technology. THE MISSION behind Louffa Press is to foster a venue for limited edition, collectible, handmade chapbooks by a wide array of authors whose voices must be heard. To introduce new and innovative flash fiction, short stories and poetry, and those forms less comfortably classified. To put forth into the world precious artifacts that embody in their physical form a meticulously tailored and individualist aesthetic.
