  2. My Beloved Spousal Unit's uncle owns several presses. He printed our wedding invitations! I've never actually seen the presses in action, so it is very neat to view this. Thank you!

  4. I'm glad you enjoyed this. My brother, a journalism professor, spotted this and shared it on FB. After many years of working in news, he finds looking at type styles to be soothing. I meant to share this information with the post, but my Blogger editing window was not working right with a Youtube share.

    There is a great print workshop in Kansas City that I need to spend some time at. The guy who runs it is a retired type designer from Hallmark and it is filled with all kinds of delectable equipment. I'll post some photos from their last open house.
