"The Arion Press was established in 1974 by Andrew Hoyem. It was the continuation of a sole proprietorship, Andrew Hoyem - Printer, that followed his partnership with Robert Grabhorn, the younger of the two brothers in the famous Grabhorn Press, active in San Francisco from 1920 to 1965. The press was known as Grabhorn-Hoyem from 1966 until the deaths of Robert and his wife Jane in 1973. From 1961 to 1964, Andrew Hoyem was in partnership with Dave Haselwood in the Auerhahn Press, which aspired to fine letterpress printing and published Beat Generation writers. Hoyem's career since then spans over fifty-four years. Between 1975 and 2014, Arion Press published one hundred books. Reaching that milestone seemed an appropriate reason to take stock of what had been accomplished and to publish a bibliography. The present volume is the one hundred and fifth of Arion Press, so this is not a winding up but a backward look in anticipation of more to come, as the nonprofit Grabhorn Institute, owner of Arion Press and the typefoundry Mackenzie & Harris, perpetuates their historic fine printing and book-making facility. The work of Arion's predecessor the Grabhorn Press was recorded in three volumes in folio-format bibliographies, printed from handset type on handmade paper with leaves from their books bound in. Arion Press has chosen a smaller format with photographic illustrations of the books, the locations, the staff, artists, authors, and supporters. The printing is from digital type by offset lithography. There are full bibliographical entries for all one hundred books, each with a commentary on its design, production, and publication."--Publisher's website (viewed 12/21/2015)
