Studio Associate / David Mittelman

New Jersey native David Mittelman moved to Colorado in 2009 after graduating from Brown University with a degree in philosophy and Portuguese & Brazilian studies.

He met Ray Tomasso at a book arts event at Abecedarian Gallery in Denver, then began to assist in cataloging and organizing type, cuts and other letterpress materials at Inter-Ocean.

David is the founder and editor of Flat Cap Publishing, a small press dedicated to promoting work by young and new authors. His first volume, Juniper, by author Kate Beall, was produced at Providence's AS220.

He is now hard at work printing Flat Cap’s second title, Moby Dick Made Me Do It, a collection of poems by Felicia Zamora, a current MFA student in creative writing at Colorado State University in Fort Collins.

The book is being printed from hand-set type on Inter-Ocean's Chandler and Price press. The edition will be sewn bound in a cover of paper handmade by Ray Tomasso with David's assistance.
