APHA | Wayzgoose

Hosted/Organized by: American Printing History Association and Hamilton Wood Type

Registration for the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum 2020 Awayzgoose is open! This year we’re excited to partner with The American Printing History Association for the conference. In this time of social distance we plan to give a big online embrace to our fellow lovers of type and letterpress. Please join us for our first online conference. It will take place as a virtual event with stellar speakers, tantalizing type tours and familiar faces that typify this event. Register for the Awayzgoose now.

Now in its 12th year, we host designers, printers, typographers and letter geeks of all stripes from across the globe. It is a weekend filled with workshops, type talk and great speakers. The Wayzgoose was originally an entertainment given by a master-printer to his workmen to mark the beginning of the season of working by candlelight. In later years, it meant an annual celebration held in summer by the employees of a printing establishment, consisting of a dinner and often an excursion into the country. Plan to join us for our online Awayzgoose, November 5-8, 2020 and for the pre-conference workshops.

This has been a challenging year for us all. Whether you’re a regular Wayzgoose attendee or a first timer, this event brings our friends together to support our mission of sharing the world’s largest collection of wood type and printing equipment with friends near and far. There’s a dollar for dollar match to your support, made possible by the Windgate Foundation. You can attend the event and become a member knowing that your generosity is matched.
