This 24 panel accordian-fold brochure showcased examples of the funded projects produced by the Goldsmith Press & Rare Type Collection between1998-2006.
This unique letterpress facility includes thousands of hand-carved wood letters, antique printing presses, papermaking materials and bindery equipment. The wood type was created circa 1900 for Metropolitan Showprint, a New England advertising company. The Austin Peay State University Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts and the Department of Art purchased the Metropolitan collection in 1997 and named the press for Arthur Goldsmith – retired librarian, book collector and longtime Clarksville resident. The Goldsmith Press was established to create an interdisciplinary self-publishing facility on the campus of Austin Peay for students, faculty, visiting artists and community members. The press was realized through the hard work and inspiration of it's director and founder Cynthia Marsh.
