Membership is limited to 50 people (currently there are 32 members) and entitles you to the following benefits:
A First Edition of every book Railway Station Press publishes for the next five years, from 2017 through the end of 2021. This First Edition will be the First Printing, limited to 50 copies and will be signed and numbered, and only available to Club members. We expect to publish two or three books each year. So this is an incredible deal.
A Quarterly Packet sent in January, April, July, and October of each year which will contain: 1. “The Publisher’s Report” giving you an update on the progress of our various book projects, and inside information about Railway Station Press, 2. extras such as letterpress printed cards, and small books done by others, and 3. limited edition pamphlets that are only available to Club members.
A Membership Certificate which has been letterpress printed by Chris Manson, Maeve, and myself, at Crooked Crow Press in Rockville, Maryland on a Vandercook press. This 5 by 7 inch certificate will have your name and member number. See below.
The cost for the 5 year membership is $100, paid by check to “Railway Station Press” and sent to Stuart Bradley at 105 East Glendale Ave, Alexandria, VA 22301. The cost of membership will go up to $150 as of January 1, 2018 if any memberships are still available at that time. All memberships will be retroactive to the beginning of 2017. Upon joining you will receive the Membership Certificate and the “First Edition, First Printing”, signed and numbered copy of The 1907 Autobiography of Henry Martin Bradley, our first book.
Railway Station Press is growing. We are in the process of incorporating in the Commonwealth of Virginia, we will seek to Trademark our press logo, and we have a list of ten book projects that we will be working on. We expect to publish books in the Fall and in the Winter. But we need working capital up front to make this happen. This is your opportunity to get in on the ground floor and help us do that!
The Founders Club membership card is 5 by 7 inches and letterpress printed.
