I’m retiring. Presses and books are for sale!

It’s time to embark on creative adventures that don’t weigh 15,000 pounds!
Now selling à la carte. Highlights include:
- Swiss Gietz Model 60 parallel-platen (fine-art platen) press, rare in the US, metric equiv. of 18x12 inches
- English Albion iron handpress, 18x24 inches, with all the fixins’ - both tympans, and the frisket
- German Hohner tabletop press, metric equiv. of 12.5 x 9 inches
- Unusual European metal type at 0.928 type-high
- 450 books about printing, type, type design, etc., collected over 40 years; many high-value books; and a few in excruciating detail about digital font production, which I did for 20 years, including at IBM and Monotype.

I’ve had 1 foot in the 15th century, and one in the 21st!

Pick-up only for the heavy things, or arrange for crating/shipping yourself. Smaller things can be shipped.
