Letterpress Examples Wanted!
The Museum of Printing in Haverhill, MA is expanding our library of works by amateur letterpress printers — publications, printed pieces, examples, samples and photographs of older printing establishments and private presses. Our new location provides us with secure, environmentally friendly storage.
We know we need publications and information by APA, APHA, ATF, AAPA, NAPA, Treasure Gems, It’s a Small World, Guy Botterill, Type and Press, The Printer Newspaper. We have examples of some of these but are trying to complete our collections. What have we missed? We do not know, so please bring us up-to-date with information on, by or about other letterpress and type organizations. We’re also interested in examples of embossing, debossing, thermography, die-cutting, etc.
The Museum of Printing has two libraries: the John Trieste Library, dedicated to type and design related materials, and the Frank Romano Library, holding over 6,000 titles covering a comprehensive range of printing interest.
The Museum of Printing is one of three large printing museums in North America and the only one located east of the Mississippi River.Top ↑
