San Jose Printers' Fair
I've been taking a 12 week long letterpress class at Foothill College in Los Altos. One of the classes was a field trip to the San Jose Printers' Fair, put on by the San Jose Printers' Guild at History Park. Chris came with me and we spent the Saturday being type and print nerds. The fair was held in History Park which has a printing office full of old printing presses which they let us play with. There were also exhibitors selling everything letterpress-related including actual letterpress machines, old wooden and metal type, printing ink and stationary. I've learned so much about letterpress the past couple months so it was great getting to talk about all things letterpress with some really passionate printers!
