The LA Printers Fair also includes a very large swap meet with hard-to-find Vandercooks, Windmill Presses, rare fonts of Wood Type, supplies, decorative papers, and so much more!

Special Exhibits this year includes a retrospective of Silkscreened Earl Newman, including many of his Monterey Jazz Festival Posters he has been making for 50 years! There will also be a special exhibit titled “PRINTING ON THE SILVER SCREEN” featuring presses from TV like John Boy’s printing press from “The Waltons” and “Twilight Zone’s: The Printer’s Devil” or westerns such as “The Man who Shot Liberty Valance” and “Have Gun Will Travel” along with newer productions like “Newsies”, “Gilmore Girls”, “Seven Pounds” and “Inception" among others...
