Starting to gather type, supplies and "things" for the Lancaster Letterpress Fair on Saturday, September 16th.
This year's fair will be a real "street" fair, being held on the North Queen Street block from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
As in years past, Letterpress Things will be set up under the canopies with overflowing tables of equipment. From fonts of wood type to boxed metal fonts, icons, even some brand new sets of type from Swamp Press. Lots of plates, books, and one-of-a-kind "things," and of course supplies including stones, planers, quoins and keys, gauges, tympan, pressboard, quads, thins, cleaner, brushes and more! (If there's something special you're looking for, contact us soon.)
We might even bring one of the small presses shown on the website.
