Familiarize yourself with some Bay Area 20th century printers and a selection of the work they published at their private presses. Or view these books from the Marjorie G. and Carl W. Stern Book Arts and Special Collections Center as a counterpoint to the College Book Art Association's BiblioTech exhibition which is running concurrently in the Skylight Gallery.
