Where it all began…



The Heidelberg inspired the typewriter… and we should be forever grateful to that mighty beast.  I got this postcard at a printer’s fair a month ago… where it was sad to see so many machines sidelined, gathering dust in the Carson warehouse/museum.  The good news was that plenty of people were there, all yearning for engraved, letterpress cards & stationery and products.  We are the “analog” lovers, as ceramicist Adam Silverman calls himself.  I’m hands-on and I’m proud…and I get happy looking at this pressman bent over his beloved metal machine.  It makes my Olympia Compact II look diminutive by comparison.
