Manneken Press LLC

Bloomington, IL

Manneken Press publishes and exhibits original, limited edition and unique prints, portfolios, artist’s books and drawings by significant contemporary artists. The press was founded in 2000 and is owned and operated by Jonathan Higgins and Sarah Smelser. Invited artists come to our studio in Bloomington, Illinois to create original works of art in intaglio, relief, lithography and monotype. The prints are made by the artists working in close collaboration with master printer Jonathan Higgins, and are hand-printed on our Takach etching press. We are committed to traditional, time tested techniques and use only the finest papers and inks to produce our prints.
