The Book Arts & Special Collections Center and San Francisco History Center present a Panama-Pacific International Exposition Centennial Broadside Printing Event in the San Francisco History Center. Come experience letterpress printing on the library’s 1909 Albion handpress and take home a unique keepsake broadside.
Our co-sponsors, the American Printing History Association’s NorCal Chapter, will provide printing expertise.
Everyone is welcome; broadsides are limited to the first 100 people.
See the handpress in action from our previous Valentine broadside printing events!
