Support the Film

Help us get the story of Barbarian Press out in the world! We need help from everyone who is passionate about books and typography. Jan and Crispin have spent their lives printing books as they were printed hundreds of years ago—their story should be shared! Here is how you can help:

  • Help us fund the cost of showing this film at festivals.
  • Connect us with festivals, libraries, museums and universities that may be interested in screening the film.
  • Interested in hosting a screening, contact Sarah here.
  • Come to one of our screenings and to tell your friends about them!
  • Tell us what you thought about the film. Message Sarah here.


Barbarian Press was filmed and produced by Sarah on a limited budget. Your donation will help her cover the cost file conversion, distribution and festival fees. Also, it would be really amazing if Sarah could raise enough money to attend the premiere in Toronto.

Please indicate if you would like your name included on the donors page of the website and if so, exactly as you’d like it to appear; or if you would prefer to remain anonymous. You can also email me if you prefer to send a cheque or if you are in Canada and wish to send an e-transfer (less fees this way). Also, I am always available for coffee.
