RE: [PPLetterpress] Free tour of M & H Type and Arion Press in San Francisco - Feb.11th
I may be going out on a limb here, but your
interpretation works for me! Just make sure these
"friends of friends" RSVP by e-mail or phone to Kenny
Howard at M&H so that M&H can anticipate and prepare
to accomodate. They just need to say that they are
friends of the sfletterpress group. Of course, if
these "friends of friends" feel a little nervous about
that, they could always sign up as sfletterpress list
members before Feb. 11 and they would then become
clearly part of the "officially invited" group if they
want too :-)
The link to sign up for the sfletterpress list is
then click on "join this group.
Here's the contact info for M&H Type for the RSVP:
