What’s the greatest invention of all time? I have to believe that without the printing press, the sharing of ideas, the documentation of social and scientific building blocks, and ultimately the acceleration of technology would have been severely crippled and have left us firmly entrenched in the middle ages. I had the privilege to visit the Frank Romano Library this past Monday and was blown away by the incredible collection Frank has amassed. The video does not even begin to truly reflect the immeasurable educational and historical value this learning center offers printing professionals, history buffs, and of course students of the communication arts. And while it’s slanted towards the print enthusiast, this archival monument to Gutenberg’s passion clearly displays how the act of putting ink on paper has impacted the world, in just about every facet. When it opens to the public, it’s a must go.

Congratulations Frank on putting together (once again - there is the Andover museum) what appears to be a comprehensive look at the evolution of the printing industry. It is also a reminder of the printing craft and skills people had to have to be photo engravers, dot etchers, sterotype casters, whirled plates and even typographers. While today we have printing in a computer box, for those of us who acquired printing skills that are now abandoned your library looks like a wonderful walk up printing lane. Did you save any type lice?
