This year for the first time, Book Arts & Special Collections joined the SF History Center at the Old Mint to celebrate San Francisco history at the SF History Expo. We partnered with APHA NorCal (the American Printing History Association) and brought along our little Golding Official printing press.
|Rose printing for the first time|
All day long, on both Saturday and Sunday, people of all ages tried their hand at letterpress printing and everyone enjoyed the experience.

|Sutro Baths bathing beauties|
Of course the other big hit of the day was at our neighbor's table which was staffed by our colleagues in the San Francisco History Center. They offered a photo-opportunity to pose as a Sutro Baths bathing beauty. People couldn't wait to have their souvenir photo taken.
It was a great event and we're already looking forward to next year's History Expo.
