International Printing Museum
... in Southern California. One of the world's most significant collections of antique printing machinery and brings it to life through working demonstrations and theatre presentations.
Since 1988, over 250,000 visitors have toured the museum, learning about the history of books and printing, great inventions and inventors that have changed our world.
The Museum was founded in 1988 by David Jacobson of Gutenberg Expositions and Ernest A. Lindner to house the Lindner Collection of Antique Printing Machinery.
The collection has grown since then with significant donations and acquisitions, making the International Printing Museum the premier exhibit on printing history throughout the world.
From 1988 until 1997, the Printing Museum was located in the city of Buena Park.
Following the acquisition of the Museum property by the California Department of Transportation in 1997, the collection was moved into storage while a new home was sought. The new public display opened in 1998 in the city of Carson, 20 minutes south of downtown Los Angeles.

Graphions Online Type Museum Table of content Organised around six sections (Typographic visionnaries, Elements of typesetting style, Old Phototypesetter tales, Q&A, The Crystal Goblet and a glossary), these pages were written by Michael Sanborn, formerly a typesetter for a company named Graphion. About his site, the author used to say that the museum serves as both a gallery of typographic trivia and a repository of information that today's graphic designers really should know and dont. ( ) A lot of elements of typographic art have been forgotten.
