This amazing event was held at the San Francisco Center for the Book recently. Our letterpress class from Foothill College went as a field trip. It looked like so much fun that several of us in the Foothill Printmakers group are planning to participate next year. Here's the URL for the relevant page on the Center's site:  http://www.sfcb.org/html/roadworks.html.

Also, since there's been discussion of etching presses lately, someone on the east coast may be interested in the following posting from the Book_Arts-L listserv.
