New Year, Old Style

In the good-will spirit of the new year, WNYBAC has been producing a number of limited edition broadsides and cards that feature quotes from Elbert Hubbard, the founder of the Roycroft Campus in East Aurora, NY. The Roycroft was instrumental in the American development and dissemination of the European style that has come to be known as "Arts and Crafts." Following in the footsteps of William Morris and his influential Kelmscott Press, Hubbard originally conceived the Roycroft as a press. They produced any number of books, pamphlets, and treatises, but none as influential and far reaching as the extended essay A Message to Garcia. Roycroft artisans pride themselves on hard work, handiskills, and technique. With that in mind, we've created a series of traditional-looking 8" x 10" broadsides suitable for framing. They will soon be available at WNYBAC, at our Etsy shop, the Roycroft Campus, and the Burchfield-Penny Art Museum gift shop. Here's a sneak peek:
