Background
The Tamalpais Press, founded by Roger Levenson, was a fine printing press located in Berkeley, California that was in operation from circa 1955 until 1976. Printing was done on an 1857 Albion handpress as well as a seventeenth century press (both of which were donated to the Bancroft Library at the University of California, Berkeley). The Tamalpais Press printed a wide range of materials from books to event posters and programs to business cards and invitations. The books printed by the press focused mostly on California history subjects.
