One craft that always fascinated me is printing. Maybe one of the remnants of my history-geek days, where I learned that it was one of mankinds’ most important inventions, the first media-revolution! Right beside the invention of fire, the wheel and agriculture.
A few years ago my brother gave me an usb stick, along with the words; “something you will like…” It was this documentary by Stephen Fry. An inquiry into the history of printing, by reconstructing an early printing press. I’ve seen it over and over again, and it never fails to amaze me. One day I will make one of these contraptions myself!
