British Columbia Fine Printing

"Fine/private presses have a distinguished history in British Columbia. Founded in Vancouver in 1946, the Private Press of Robert R. Reid was the first of its kind in Canada. The British Columbia Fine Printing collection contains digitized publications and ephemera of several B.C. fine/private presses. In addition to items from Reid's early career in Vancouver, the collection features works by Takao Tanabe (Periwinkle Press), Jim Rimmer (Pie Tree Press & Type Foundry), Jan & Cripsin Elsted (Barbarian Presss), and many others."
