Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Arion Press pairs great artists with great literature to create beautiful books by hand. We publish several limited editions every year, each conceptually unique. Some are accompanied by separate editions of original prints. Our production facility includes a letterpress shop with a historic collection of typefaces, a type foundry operating machinery from 100 years ago, and a complete hand book bindery, 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 an annual series of public talks, events and gallery exhibits at the Press.
