Published every May and distributed during the Wayzgoose. A run of 31 annuals of the APA. These give examples of all kinds of printing by various members of the association throughout the years. The group belonged to Donn Sanford, a past president of the Association. The 2005 book includes two notices of Sanford's death and closing of his press. Attached to the front is a note to his wife from the editor, Ernie Blitzer. All are in very nice shape, the older ones having a bit more shelf wear.
