The Vandercook Press Now on Screen

What a nice surprise to see cameos in this trailer of my two good friends, Bonnie Thompson Norman of The Windowpane Press in Seattle and Jessica Spring of the Springtide Press in Tacoma. They are joined by 98 other respected Vandercook printers, who are featured in this newly released video in tribute to the centennial of the Vandercook proof press (1909-2009.) The trailer follows last year's release of The Vandercook100 book published by Heather Mitchell of Just Vandy. It showcases the work of 100 selected printers recognized for their fine press work and their devotion to the venerated Vandercook. This popular proof press has probably introduced more people to fine printing than the potato.
