Gerrit Henry, poet, art critic, and author of the article, "Vincent FitzGerald: Five Ruminations," writes that since he started his company FitzGerald has been "a print dealer with a difference. FitzGerald believes that prints should serve a function - in many cases, to enhance and complement classic texts in the classic modern livres deluxes tradition." As Henry explains, FitzGerald's work includes, "hiring good translators, synchronizing artists with text, locating printers and binders, and working intensively with them, just generally taking care of every detail of publication right down to the color of the typeface - is to borrow a phrase, labor intensive. But, as FitzGerald frank wit and gravely perky demeanor suggest, this is enjoyable work....FitzGerald's works are acts of courage as well as creation."
