Old School Moveable Type (MGK)

Real moveable type. Ever since I investigated the meaning of the name of the character “Shurdlu” in Elmer Rice’s The Adding Machine, I’ve had a longing to learn how to use an old-fashioned printing press — one that actually presses the paper. As much as I love the power of “push-button publishing for the masses,” there is still something to be said about the care that must go into getting it right when one uses a real printing press.
