Vandercook No. 3 and Chicago Letterpress Sale

We are downsizing our letterpress studio in Chicago and are looking to sell our Vandercook No. 3., a lot of extra type, copper cuts, furniture, and other odds and ends, including some Vandercook parts.

We are asking $7500 for the press, it is an old style model that has a new feedboard (with two slots for bookwork), and a new gripper bar accessory.

We have about 40 cases of type and a double wide type cabinet. Some highlights include a font of Caslon ligatures, a large run of Goudy Old Style, Cooper Black, and Park Avenue with matching spacing.

We are going to try and run a sale Saturday October 12 11am–4pm but please RSVP if you are planning on coming, if we don’t hear from anyone we might not be there.

The studio is at 3065 N. Rockwell, by Belmont and the river, call April Sheridan or Daniel Mellis from the call box and we can buzz you in, we are on the second floor in the back by the freight elevator.

if you want to come another time just let us know.
