Arion Press pairs great artists with great literature to create beautiful books by hand. We publish several limited editions every year, each conceptually unique and printed from metal types cast on site. Our production facility includes a letterpress shop with a one-of-a-kind collection of historic metal typefaces, a type foundry now in continuous operation for over 100 years, and a complete hand book bindery, all housed in a 14,000 square foot industrial building in San Francisco’s Presidio National Park. The Press is supported by the 501(c)(3) non-profit Grabhorn Institute, designated an “irreplaceable cultural treasure” by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The Institute sponsors apprenticeships, tours, public talks, and gallery exhibits at the Press.
