The Tragara Press, Edinburgh

This website is dedicated to the work of The Tragara Press (1954-2012) and to its printer Alan Anderson (1922-2016). It is created by bibliophiles and collectors who appreciate Alan Anderson's lifelong devotion to the art of printing and the elegance of his productions, which become instantly recognisable by anyone who ever experienced holding a Tragara in their hands.
