Hurrah! I'm now in possession of a fabulous treasure chest full of old printing equipment! I'm still waiting for the proper reconditioned press to arrive but in the meantime I've got these to amuse me. Spent much of the weekend rummaging around and "cooing" at dirty old metal type and fleurons.
Tried it out the other day - all be it with a hand brayer for the ink as it needs a new set of inking rollers and some ready set type I found in the chest - and with a bit of patience I think I may be onto something!
