THE 6th ANNUAL LA PRINTERS FAIR
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 4th, 2014

Well, the tradition of having a hot time at the Fair was upheld again this year but that didn’t stop people from coming to the International Printing Museum’s Printers Fair in Carson, California.

Over 1,200 people showed up to enjoy the camaraderie that has become the West Coast’s largest Book Arts and Letterpress Fair! Kevin Bradley once again wowed people with his posters and right-then-and-there printing, John Barrett’s Letterpress Things was selling all the supplies anyone could use in their shop, Sky Shipley from Skyline Type Foundery was selling type to help in the next great printing piece, vendors of all types (no pun intended) were showing and selling to the large number of visitors that came. We had a number of new vendors that had a great time with the crowds that braved the record-breaking weather.

The Staff and Volunteers at the International Printing Museum hope that you enjoyed yourselves!

Mark your calendars for the 7th Annual Los Angeles Printers Fair on October 3, 2015!

See you there next year!

    The Printing Museum’s
    25TH ANNIVERSARY
    BUILDING CAMPAIGN




    The Museum’s Building Campaign has been created to raise $1 million over the next two years to underwrite the expansion of the Printing Museum’s exhibits and programs and to develop an Operations Fund for the Museum’s future. With plans to expand the Museum facility, improve the exhibits and develop new educational tours and programs, the Printing Museum needs your support to achieve these important goals. Your contributions in YEAR ONE of the Building Campaign will be generously matched $1 for $1 by a grant from PIASC.

    The seven initiatives of the Building Campaign are to Double the Public Display in the front building, Build an Enlarged Theatre, Expand the Book Arts Institute facility in the rear building, Create a Rotating Exhibit Gallery, Develop Two New Educational Programs & Exhibits on California and World History, Create a New Current & Future Technology Exhibit, and Build an Operations Fund for the Museum’s future.
