Guest Speakers

Please join us for our annual meeting in the community room of the much beloved South Pasadena Library. This year, the American Printing History Association’s Southern California Chapter is proud to present a talk from local letterpress printers Rosanna and Joel Kvernmo of the Iron Curtain Press. Founded in 2007 in Seattle, Washington, the Iron Curtain Press has emerged as a widely successful twenty-first century commercial letterpress. Their work has been sold in several countries, in more than twenty states, and in scores of shops in dozens of cities across the nation. The two printers have been covered by Uppercase Magazine, Assemble, Brown Ink, and Bunch Magazine among others. We are pleased to have the Kvernmo team speak about their experience running a commercial letterpress operation in the digital age.

Chapter Elections

Prior to our guest speaker and reception, the SoCal chapter will be holding elections for the next two-year term. There will be some important changes to come, as this year we will be electing a new Chapter President, Treasurer, and Membership Chair. We will also be voting to re-elect the Program Chair and Secretary for a second term.
