Description: For John Anderson (born 1915), book designer, typographer and printer, a love of fine printing developed early. Inspired by the printing activities of the Wright Brothers, Anderson acquired a small hand press at the age of thirteen. Since that modest beginning, Anderson has established himself among the foremost of small press proprietors continuing the tradition of handset type. Over the course of his six-decade career, Anderson has printed numerous books, broadsides, and catalogues as well as myriad invitations, keepsakes, advertisements, announcements, and other ephemera. The consistent high quality and clean design of Anderson's work have garnered him both awards and praise among printing circles and a high reputation with clients.
