LSC has coordinated its collections of modern fine presses, particularly those of California printers, with the Clark Library. It is a repository of publications of the Black Sparrow Press (California) and the Whittington Press (England). Special book collections have been created, such as one for books printed by Edmund Evans and another for books designed and illustrated by Rex Whistler. The Gullans-Espey collections of more than 1600 American trade and designer bookbindings were donated by Charles Gullans and John Espey. Well-represented within this collection are bindings by renowned binders Decorative Designers, Margaret Armstrong, Bertha Stuart, Sarah Whitman, Frank Hazenplug, George Wharton Edwards, and Will Bradley. Library Special Collections maintains with current acquisitions a collection of graphic arts ephemera, mostly prospectuses, begun by Jake Zeitlin.
