Letterpress printing is a technique that has gone out of favor, but not out of style. The output of a quality letterpress is visually impressive. Each individual letter set and spaced to within fractions of an inch. Imagine doing a whole book like that. Reading would cost a fortune. The type is really something to be appreciated as there is a whole other dimension to a letterpress print than there is to the laser printed copies we see today. To see a craftsman like the man in the video dedicate the time to master such an outdated skill is awesome, especially in these days of e=mail and xerox machines.

One of the all time best Twilight Zones stars Burgess Meredith as a linotype operator of super human ability. He gets a job for a small newspaper. He is SO good that he can predict the news.

He is Satan.
