[BKARTS] print shop estate for sale

I am copying this with permission from an AAPA (American Amateur Press
Assn.) alert from Ivan Sanders.
Regards, Lee
Lee Kirk, The Prints & The Paper

Bill Boys, Secretary-treasurer of the National Amateur Press
Association (NAPA), has informed me that the late NAPA member Blaine
Lewis' well-equipped shop is for sale.  A 32-page illustrated
inventory file of Blaine's shop is available in PDF format from Bill
Boys for anyone who might be looking for a large, well-equipped
private press.  Blaine's shop has stood untouched since his death, and
with the death earlier this year of Belle, his widow, their daughter
is in the process of settling the estate.  Her preference would be to
find a single buyer for the entire shop, who will be able to remove
the contents of the shop from the basement of the house, which is in
Louisville, Ky.  (A straight stairwell leads from the basement to the
double garage for ease of access.)

Also, if you know a college or university that might be interested in
starting or adding to a book arts press, let Bill know and he will
send a copy to them; it seems that such a large private shop as
Blaine's would qualify for such consideration.

You can contact Bill Boys by electronic mail:  (wboys@xxxxxxxxxxxxx);
by telephone: phone (865) 584-9222; or by mail: 6507 Westland Dr.,
Knoxville TN  37919-8224.
