National Amateur Press Association membership bundles
The National Amateur Press Association first met in 1876, and is considered the oldest amateur press group in the world. The organization is founded in the tradition of letterpress printing, but also encompasses the associated arts of writing, editing, publishing, and illustration as they pertain to amateur journalism. "Bundles" are mailed each month to all members, containing the work of printers as well as writers and poets, who may or may not print their own material. This collection contains portions of these monthly bundles from 1969-2016.
