NOTE: My Name is Richard Peck and I am using the account of Art Satterthwaite. Art is the CEO here and I am the Lead Estimator. In the early 70's, I lived in Boston and worked for a small offset-letterpress printer on South St. I visited TJ Lyons print shop on Brighton Ave, near Comm. Ave and got to speak to Mr Lyons. This was in 1973, before I went to RIT(where I learned so much more about letterpress, about type and about fonts), but I was still "blown away" by his wealth of knowledge about the industry, about the amount of California Job Cases he had stacked in that office!! We spoke for over an hour!! An incredible man, for sure. After speaking with him, I decided to learn the Miehle V-50 press and the Heidelberg Windmill, Which I did over the next 12 months from 2 journeymen in the shop I worked in. I will NEVER, ever forget that visit to Brighton Ave or the man!!!!

It would be wonderful if some of these unique designs could be preserved as digital type!
