5285Free tour of M & H Type and Arion Press in San Francisco - Feb.11th
- Jan 31, 2006To: All PPLetterpress folks who still dabble in type
once in a while, and who will be in and around San
Francisco on Saturday Feb. 11th at 10:30 a.m. M&H is
one of the last major type foundries still in
business, and a tour of their facility in the Presidio
of San Francisco will be a real treat.
This is an invitation for a free tour of M&H Type
foundry and adjacent Arion press and bindery.
The original invitation that was first sent to the
sfletterpress list is now being extended to you! The
original invitation was sent to the sfletterpress
group and "your friends."
Since everyone on ppletterpress is a friend of mine,
that means everyone on the ppletterpress list is now
As sfletterpress list manager, I am forwarding this
invitation to all who might also be able to join in on
Hope some of you can join us! See details below...
