Woodside: Heyeck Press, 1978 -1989. January 17, 1988 letter on her personal letterhead describing in detail how, why, and where she got started. From the purchase, for her husband, of her 8 x 12 Chandler & Price Platen Press to the day, over a year later, that she first printed invitations for a housewarming party, "As soon as I saw pieces of paper coming out of the press, printed, I knew I would be doing this for the rest of my life. It was extraordinary, love, in fact." She describes how, at first, she thought she might make a business of printing stationery, taking out a business license to do so in 1976, the year she printed and published the first book from her Heyeck Press. "Twelve years later, I'm still printing and still loving it. John has forgiven me for taking over what was to be a hobby for him .... My two sons are grown and I've become involved in paper marbling ...." TOGETHER WITH 3 MARBLED POSTCARDS FROM THE PRESS with autograph notes signed. AND 10 BOOKS, including "The Flowering Quince Poetry Series" Numbers One - Five (complete) with printed announcement "Winter 1985"; a later printing of Adrienne Rich's "Sources" with the prospectus from the original publication; and 4 other titles from the press, each with prospectus laid in. Fine.
