My friend and colleague, J. Joel Farber (retired Professor of Classics, Franklin and Marshall
College) and I founded All Kinds Blintzes Press in 1998, through which we published sixty
chapbooks, on a variety of subjects, in editions limited to 26 lettered copies each, desk-top
printed and hand-sewn into exotic wrappers. Complete runs are in the libraries at Millersville
University, Franklin & Marshall College, and Colorado College. Ganser mounted an exhibition
of our work. Our publications have never been for sale but available only through charitable
donations to organizations and causes of our selection. We ceased publication after ten years,
during which we raised nearly $15,000 for various non-profit recipients.
