Institutional Owners

Individuals with an interest in fine printing or private press books frequently purchase our products. Also, of course, The Printery’s products are purchased by individuals with a specific interest in the content. However, about half of each press run is purchased by public and private libraries that have collections related to the book’s subject, fine printing, or the history of the book. You’ll find a pretty comprehensive list below. An asterisk indicates a major collection.
