Registration

The Marjorie G. and Carl W. Stern Book Arts & Special Collections Center presents the 7th Annual Valentine Broadside Printing Event on Saturday, February 3rd, 2-4 p.m. in the San Francisco History Center on the 6th Floor of the Main Library. You are invited to experience letterpress printing on the library’s 1909 Albion handpress and take home a unique keepsake for your sweetheart.

This year we will be printing a broadside with a poem and illustration by San Francisco's Poet Laureate Kim Shuck. She will be our special guest and available to sign broadsides as requested.

Our co-sponsors, the American Printing History Association’s NorCal Chapter will provide printing assistance.

Everyone is invited but broadsides will be limited to the first 100 people.
