A Beautiful, Vintage Letterpress Collection

The newest donations from Les Feller & family have officially been displayed and integrated into the Tampa Book Arts Studio, located in the Edison Building on the University of Tampa campus. The framed 18th & 19th century posters, broadsides, and playbills were hung in honor of Gordon and Dorthy Martin.

Of special note is an educational display about “The Wood Engraver's Art,” assembled and mounted by Les to showcase the achievements and techniques of this art form.  A second panel includes a representative selection of engraver’s tools and instruments.
