The Printshop

There are many interesting printing presses housed at Gaspereau Press. Perhaps the most historically significant one is this little 3 × 5 Kelsey parlor press which Canadian typographer and type designer Carl Dair used at his private press in the 1940s. Dair later gave the press to his friend Oscar Ross, and Ross in turn gave it to Gaspereau Press in 2007.
