The Private Press Collection: Finial Press
A. Doyle Moore. Champaign, Illinois
Doyle Moore established Finial Press in 1962 to promote contemporary poetry. The former head of the Graphic Design department and professor emeritus of the University of Illinois- Urbana Champaign, continues to work as a typographer, printer and binder for his private press. He will often collaborate with artist and designers if the book requires it. Northern Illinois University’s Private Press Collection houses a handful of books from this Illinois press.
