About the artist
Artist, letterpress printer, publisher, and educator Felicia Rice set Moving Parts Press in motion in 1977. Her hundreds of limited-edition artists books, broadsides, and prints feature “book structures in which word and image meet and merge” through collaborations with visual and performing artists, writers, poets, and philosophers, and with a special focus on Chicana/o/x creatives. Her work has been exhibited widely, her books are held in library and museum collections worldwide, and she has received numerous awards. She is now rebuilding Moving Parts Press at her family home in Mendocino.
