About Club

An Invitation

We invite you to join The Ampersand Club, an organization for those who love books, fine printing and the book arts. The Ampersand Club fosters appreciation for the historic and artistic importance of the printed book, and for the arts essential to book production, such as typography, fine printing, binding, papermaking, and book design.

The Ampersand Club History

Ampersand is the oldest organization of its kind in this area; founded in 1930 by Frank K. Walter and Arnett W. Leslie, the sixteen member group became The Ampersand Club at the suggestion of writer Christopher Morley. In 1979, the members voted to extend their activities and formed a nonprofit corporation so that the organization could grow in size and in the scope of its offerings to the community.
