      The Bay Area Printers’ Fair & Wayzgoose is coming to San Jose on May 17, 2014! This event celebrates letterpress printing and allied arts. Visitors can print keepsakes on several vintage presses from handset metal type, tour a 1900s print shop, and more. Exhibitors will be offering letterpress printed goods, artist books, fine papers, ink, handset type, and reference materials, as well as printing presses, tools, and equipment for printing and related crafts. The 2014 Printers’ Fair and Wayzgoose continues the tradition of the Marin Small Press Fair and later the San Francisco Book Arts and Printers’ Fair.

      The event is sponsored by the San Jose Printers’ Guild, who will provide shop tours and letterpress demonstrations in their museum Print Shop at History San Jose as part of the Fair. Print enthusiasts, students, educators, graphic designers, typophiles, artists, and printers new or old will enjoy the demonstrations, tours, and array of vendors and exhibitors.
