Letterpress publications

This is being forwarded from letpress@UNB.CA and might be of interest to
some. Letpress is a new list for letterpress printing etc.

> > Press.

Yes, sure. They are:

1) The Printer, edited by Michael Phillips, 337 Wilson Street, Box 1402,
Findlay, OH 45840. Telephone: (419) 422-4958.  FAX: (419) 422-2777.
Issued monthly. Rates: 1 year, (12 issues) $20; $35 for two years; $50
for three years. Contains lots of current items of interest to
letterpress printers, and a great many classified ads for presses and
equipment for sale all over the US, Canada, and the UK. A free classified

2) Type and Press, edited by Fred Williams, 24667 Heather Court, Hayward,
CA 94545. Issued quarterly. Rates: 1 year (four issues) $4 US, $4.50
Canada, overseas surface mail $5, overseas air $6.25. (Note: these rates
were listed in the fall of 1994; US postal rates have gone up, but I
don't know if they affect Type & Press' prices.) Contains interesting
articles of interest to letterpress printers, and lots of classified ads
for buying & selling presses, type, and equipment. Tell Fred that Steve
Saxe sent you.
