We currently have 40+ exhibitors committed, so this will be our biggest event yet. See list of exhibitors below.

This free event co-hosted by the San Jose Printers’ Guild and History San Jose celebrates letterpress printing through hands-on demonstrations of printing, papermaking, and binding, and features artists and craftspeople selling their wares, plus supplies and equipment for printers and makers of all sorts.

When members of the Printers’ Guild prepare for this year’s Fair, they will be thinking of their departed friend Willys Peck. He was a longtime journalist at the San Jose Mercury News; in the old newspaper days, he recalled, when a huge news story required a huge headline, the editor would exclaim “Break out the wood type!”

The Wayzgoose this year will feature a silent auction offering two fonts of vintage wood type from Willys’ shop, suitable for those times when ordinary-sized metal type is not big enough to express the occasion. Such fonts of large wooden letters are very collectible now, and bidding is expected to be brisk. Proceeds will benefit Willys’ wife.

Exhibitors will be offering letterpress printed cards, art prints, book arts, fine papers, ink, handset type, vintage books, jewelry, and ephemera, as well as printing presses, tools, and equipment for printing and related crafts.
Visitors will learn how to set type, impress ink onto paper, and print their own wood-type poster!
