Founded by printer-poet Dave Haselwood in 1958, the Auerhahn Press published many key poets of the San Francisco Renaissance. Most were chapbooks handset by Haselwood, later with Andrew Hoyem, in a creative and subtle variety of fonts.

Hoyem went on to form The Arion Press, which is still in business today. A wonderful collection of rarities from this influential press. Includes: Bell, Joan. Nineteen Poems.
