Notes: "When Ted Freedman started his press, over ten years ago, it was suggested that he call it the Pizen Oak Press, because of the abundance of poison oak about the house. Tho that name was never used, a bouquet of poison oak did find its way into his pressmark, in combination with a stick of type. The device was drawn by Helen Robertson Mannarino." © James Lamar Weygand
