Two of us were able to travel to the Smithsonian for a letterpress event sponsored by the American Printing History Association. Several Kelsey’s were set up for kids (including us) to print souvenirs. A small assortment of interesting items from storage were on special display including several small models, a small tabletop iron press, an aluminum take-apart spy press in a briefcase, and a small card press complete with specially sized type. Josef Beery was on hand with one of his Book Beetle Presses which Paul makes a print on here.
Who we are:The Conestoga Press is part of the Historical Society of the Cocalico Valley and housed in the Carriage House of the Theodore Sprecher Museum at 249 West Main Street, Ephrata, Pennsylvania. It is operated by volunteers most Saturday mornings and during special events. See our Google Group Forum for current Schedule announcements.
