The name "Luminice Press" will designate artist books and broadsides that were printed on a new platen press designed and constructed by Thomas Parker Williams.
The printing press, also named the Luminice Press, (second version) is a hydraulic-assisted hand press capable of producing 12,000 lbs of total platen pressure on a 10 by 10 inch platen. The bed of the press is a precision ground slab of granite. The press has a unique feature: platen pressure is controlled by high force Belleville springs and a metering system that allows accurate gaging of platen force. This allows printing on many types of papers and other materials with a variety of impression depths.
Luminice Press is the collaborative work of Thomas Parker Williams and Mary Agnes Williams
