Non-Electric Local News

Print Proof

Many sets of Century Schoolbook 10-point lead type – cast by M & H Type Foundry in San Francisco – arrived at my house by mail this past weekend.

It was the latest step in the process of equipping my homemade printing press and learning to handset type to publish Steady State College using human-power.

Above is a (fuzzy) photo of one of the first proofs of one set, pulled this morning.

  1. Love this. Any chance the printing press will come up in a homesteading workshop? I think my son would really enjoy seeing it in action!
