Fine Print: A Newsletter for the Arts of the Book
Offered are copies of the newsletter from the first years. These are NOT the
pretty illustrated version of the magazine, which started later as the
publication grew. They?re plain printed newsletters, 11x8 inches, most
folded without staples. The publication had limited circulation in the
earliest years, and these are therefore somewhat scarce.

Vol 2 number 3, July 1975. 8 pages. The feature article is on William
Everson (Brother Antoninus) focusing on his printing. (He began the Equinox
Press in 1949.) Everson has to be one of our most unusual and complicated
20th-Century poets ? a conscientious objector who was asssigned to the work
camp in Waldport, Oregon where, (along with William Stafford and others) he
founded an arts program for the residents. Considered to be one of the major
contributors to the San Francisco Renaissance movement, in 1951 he became a
Dominican monk. His poetry and his printing projects reflect his deeply held
convictions. This issue also contains news about various presses and their
projects at the time, an article on Caslon, ?Fifty Books of the Year,?
obituaries (including that of John Carter), and other ?shop talk.? A narrow
strip of toning along the spine, otherwise a nice clean copy.
