The Versatile Vandercook

Along with the Southern California Chapter of the American Printing History Association, the Printing Museum will be hosting Paul Moxon of Chicago on Sunday, March 16th at 3 pm.

Paul will be giving a presentation, THE VERSATILE VANDERCOOK, a talk about the Vandercook and other brands of hand-operated flatbed cylinder presses and their transition from essential printing plant equipment to their repurposing as a highly desirable book arts tool.

This will be a rare opportunity to meet Paul who has amassed an amazing amount of information on the Vandercook, is an exceptional educator and instructor on their operation, and is also very knowledgeable on their repair and maintenance. Paul is also studio letterpress printer, itenerant teacher and author of 'Vandercook Press: Mainenance, History and Resources.' We hope you can join us for a great afternoon at the Printing Museum

Lecture starts at 3 pm, followed by some practical time on the Museum's Vandercooks and a brief reception. Admission is free for members of APHA and the Printing Museum, $8 otherwise at the door. For more information and to RSVP: or
