Our Collection

The Cincinnati Type & Print Museum has a large collection of presses and other printing equipment. We also have over 450 cases of foundry type, 45 fonts of wood type, numerous "cuts" and printing plates, as well as a library and archival collection dating back to the late 1700s.

We have been working with the Cincinnati and Hamilton County Public Library to digitize parts of our collection!
