North Bay Letterpress Arts exists to teach and practice letterpress printing. It is also an experimental commons for those who are fascinated by the graphic presence of words formed & printed by hand. The shop in Sebastopol hosts workshops, tours, exhibits, poetry readings, book launches and a bemusement park. Please consider taking advantage of us; take a class, take a letter, take our advice, take a tour, take in a reading or a vagabond book. And while you’re on the website, consider giving a donation. The poetry of printing is a good cause.
