Frank Visits Faneuil Hall’s Edes & Gill: An 18th-Century Print Shop

Published on September 14, 2018

Frank plays with his newest toy: a model of an English common press, a design that improved upon Gutenberg’s original. He then takes a field trip to Boston’s Faneuil Hall Marketplace, location of Edes & Gill, an 18th-century print shop that has a life-size English common press as well as other period printing equipment. There, he talks with Gary Gregory, executive director and master printer, and his assistant Tyler Kerr.

This is cool!
Nice work. I gotta go see the press in action.

 

By Paul White on Sep 22, 2018

Not only is this "Cool" as Noel commented, this press also reminds me of the working prototype of the first Presstek press that Bob Howard and Dick WIlliams demonstrated for us in their Hudson, NH shop..... a while ago.
