The 2021 Los Angeles Printers Fair will be held both in-person at the International Printing Museum in Carson, CA and virtually on printersfair.com, where you can find tickets and additional information.
The Los Angeles Printers Fair is the largest annual celebration of letterpress, book arts, and the paper in the West. With the backdrop of the Museum’s world-famous collection of antique presses, the LA Printers Fair annually brings together 90 artistic vendors and 2,000 visitors to explore the creative worlds of handmade books and printing.
Exhibitors include some of the finest letterpress and printmaking artists in the Southwest and beyond, offering custom posters, prints, hand-printed cards, memorabilia, decorative papers, and antiquarian books for sale. Throughout the Museum’s galleries visitors can also print their own keepsakes on antique letterpresses, have their name cast in printer’s type, make paper by hand, or even screen print their own shirt!
During the fair, there will also be an equipment sale. Letterpress Things, Skyline Type, and the Museum itself will be selling presses, including tabletops and vandercooks, wood and metal type, and other printing equipment.
All proceeds from the Fair go to the International Printing Museum, a non-profit institution dedicated to the heritage, preservation, and advancement of the printing arts.
