Notes: "The ship's wheel would have been a suitable pressmark for Warren J. Brodie, who was an amateur yachtsman as well as amateur printer and life member of the National Amateur Press Association. Another life member of the NAPA, Helm Spink, bought the shop in 1944, adopted the name, and added the symbol of the helmsman. The mark was designed by Helm Spink." © James Lamar Weygand
