Background
The Zamorano Club was created in Los Angeles on 25 January 1928. Named from the first known printer in California, Agustin Vicente Zamorano, the Club's primary purpose was "to establish contact and encourage exchange of thought among its members, who shall be men interested in books." Secondary purposes included encouraging book arts, building a collection to support that aim, and publishing fine press works printed in limited numbers.
