CURATOR’S PRESENATION

5:30 pm

The newest collection to The Printing Museum is rare type and printing blocks from Earl Hays Press in Sunland (Hollywood area). Earl Hays Press is the oldest letterpress shop in Los Angeles and the leading producer of “fakes” and “inserts” for Hollywood film and television shows for 100 years. Everything from the old newspapers seen in every Western movie or in The Godfather movies, to Astronaut Jack Nicolson on a fake Time Magazine cover, even the printing plates used to make the police decals on Beverly Hills 90210; all of these are the creative work of the iconic Hollywood printing shop known as Earl Hays Press. Over the years, the Printing Museum has collaborated with Earl Hays Press renting the actual working antique presses used in the films while EHP created the inserts. Curator Mark Barbour will talk about the history of Earl Hays Press and show off some of the typographical and printing gems from this new acquisition.
