From the LetPress Discussion List:

There is a new letterpress publication. It isn’t printed letterpress
(!) and it’s not even printed on paper! (What are we coming to?) The
publication’s name is Galley Gab and published by me, Mike
It’s initial audience is the membership of the Amalgamated Printers’ Association (APA) but subject matter is and will be of interest to all involved in letterpress. It is open to all who are interested in letterpress.

If you wish to see a copy (PDF file—712 KB), send an email TO THE ADDRESS BELOW.


I’ve seen the first issue of the Galley Gab, and it is great! Whether your interest is printing, typography or design, do check it out.

For those who have a printing press, the APA (Amalgamated Printers Association) is a wonderful organization that enables the exchange of printed work – inspiring both newbies and pros, and keeping printers connected with one another.

For all kinds of amateur printing, writing and publishing (including desktop), both the AAPA (American Amateur Press Association) and the NAPA (National Amateur Press Association) are really excellent organizations. I’m a member of the AAPA, and the monthly bundles are better than any magazine. The organization is not only family friendly, but family-welcoming, with a special emphasis on attracting members who home-school, providing opportunity to experience and develop their journalism skills, warmly encouraging young people and their work.
