22nd ANNUAL PRINTERS' FAIR IN SAN FRANCISCO



TWENTY-SECOND ANNUAL PRINTERS' FAIR

Saturday, April 20, 1996
10am - 4pm
Building A, Conference Center, Fort Mason, San Francisco
FREE TO THE PUBLIC

For more information please call The Pacific Center for the Book Arts (PCBA)
at 415-281-5902.

The 1996 Printers' Fair abounds in demonstrations and sales of fine
handprinting, papers marbled and handmade, book binding, plus tools and
information for all the book arts. We're expecting to attract over 1,000
attendees from all over the Bay Area. Many exhibitors and attendees come to
the Printers' Fair just to catch up on the latest -- which might be gossip,
an innovative book arts technique, or a beautifully designed print that is
truly "hot off the press."  Fair attendees can also find out about a number
of local book arts organizations devoted to the book arts disciplines of
printing, calligraphy, book binding, papermaking, conservation, book design,
illustration, and collecting.

Originated by The Small Press Club of Marin, newly sponsored by the PCBA, The
Fair will feature perennial favorites such as Moth Marblers, a selection from
Jim Heagy's monstrous warehouse of type and printing equipment, and Gordon
Sullivan's antique Gutenberg-style handpress. Other exhibitors at the Fair
include world-famous Dan X. Solo of Solotype (famed for his typographic
headlines that graced much of the early Rolling Stone and for fantastic
historical typefaces that Solotype collected and published) unveiling his
600-piece rubber stamp collection, Nancy Chandler with handmade mulberry
papers from Thailand, and bookbinders Dominick Riley and John DeMerritt --
possibly the only bookbinders in the world with a cable TV show (sponsored by
the San Francisco Library).

We're also expecting a surprise guest with two presses and one hundred cases
of type -- so, if you're looking to set up a letterpress studio, this may be
your opportunity. This information is all that I have, so do come early to
The Fair to check this exhibitor out.
