FAG Census

fag-logo

Dafi Kühne has launched a website (July 12, 2012) dedicated to sharing information about FAG proof presses www.proofpress.ch. As it develops this page will be archived and the FAG census transferred to to this domain.

This table attempts to catalog existing FAG relief proof presses. Currently, there are 24 presses listed. FAG (Fournitures pour les Arts Graphiques: tr. Supplies for the Graphic Arts) presses were built in Lausanne, Switzerland between 1937 and the 1990s. In the 1960s, FAG was also an importer of Vandercooks into Great Britain and continental Europe.
