JIM GRISENTI AUCTION

We are pleased to announce a very special auction this year.

Jim Grisenti (APA 267) —  Woodside Press / Denver, Colorado — spent 56 years amassing this wonderful collection until his passing in 2016. Aside from a few select items the family has kept, the collection is intact and everyone who attends will have the opportunity to bid on items from this inspired letterpress collection.

There are over 250 fonts of metal type (at least 88 of which are ornate antique fonts) and an additional 65+ fonts of wood type. There are also many many flats and boxes of cuts, ornaments, borders, etc. The auction will also include Jim’s book collection, cabinets, and his beautiful 8″ x 12″ Old Reliable foot-treadled press.

This auction will be held at the Letterpress Depot in Englewood, CO on Saturday afternoon, June 23, 2018 at 1:30pm. Open to all! (source)

About the APA
The Amalgamated Printers’ Association was organized in 1958 as a hobby printers group so that members could improve their skills, expand their knowledge, and exchange samples of their letterpress work. Today, the APA consists of both professional and amateur letterpress printers, but our emphasis is still on the exchange of members’ letterpress printing and information on sources of equipment and better printing practices.
