IRON TALK: JOURNAL OF ANTIQUE PRESSING IRONS
Issues of this journal are very hard to come by! Usually you will only be able to find a complete set from another collector or at auction.

Iron Talk was published bi-monthly 1996-2002 by Jimmy & Carol Walker, who
were well known iron collectors from Texas. If you are an iron collector, or a trivet collector who would like to learn more about irons, then this is a wonderful reference.

There were 40 journals issued between 1995 and 2002.
Every other month a different topic was discussed. Each issue has 14-16 pages printed on heavy stock; 8 1/2" x 11".
