Fine Printing Collection

Fine printing is a high-quality art which uses movable-type printing methods on mechanical printing presses and requires a high degree of craftsmanship to produce handmade limited-edition items such as advertisements, announcements, booklets, bookmarks, broadsides of poems or quotes accompanied by art, calendars, Christmas or greeting cards, ephemera, invitations, pamphlets, or stationery. The Fine Printing Collection includes materials from Andre Chaves and his Clinker Press, ephemera from the Book Club of California and the Yolla Bolly Press, as well as items from Roxburghe and Zamorano Club meetings.
