A tribute to Harold Berliner, printer, district attorney and good friend.

Monday, April 26, 2010

Harold Berliner passed away this last weekend at the age of 86. Harold was a good friend of the Ascender team - we first got to know Harold almost 20 years ago when he had a wonderful letterpress printing and typecasting operation that produced many fine books and broadside posters.

We hope to put together a collection of our thoughts and stories in the coming days.... in the meantime our thoughts and prayers to out to Harold's family.
