L.A. Weekly:

Technology keeps trying to take paper away from us, but man can’t live by computers and mobile devices alone. For the past 10 years, the Los Angeles Printers Fair has attracted thousands of visitors who use paper as both a necessity and an art form. This weekend, 80 vendors and independent artists, including the Angels Gate Cultural Center, Los Angeles Printmaking Society and Otis College of Art & Design Lab Press, will be selling letterpress and paper art, everything from antique books to posters to memorabilia. New this year is an appearance by Chris Fritton, a printer and poet who visited 120 letterpress shops across the country and produced 15,000 prints, which he chronicles in his new book, The Itinerant Printer. The schedule also features tours of the International Printing Museum, which was founded in 1988 and houses one of the largest antique printing presses in America, a special exhibit on the fair’s last decade, demonstrations, and printing and paper-making workshops.
