If you ever get a chance to go to the Gutenberg Museum in Mainz with Frank do it! It's like having your own personal historian/tour guide. Thanks again, Frank! One of the highlights of my drupa trip to Germany.

I don't have a very pertinant comment other than to say......The last time I saw Mainz was in 1944 and I'm sure it doesn't now look anything like it did then. Patton had paid them a visit and he was pretty destructive. I'm sure the Museum would be a thrill.

I remember going through the Museum just after taking the typography classes at RIT.
There was a very nice looking young lady also visiting. I started explaining to her the books on display and why they were important (Like books printed by Bodoni etc) to the development of type.
Before long I had about 20 people following me.
Probably the most unique "pick up" I ever tried. It was unsuccessful.
