Hot off the Press, our first test print

Acquiring a full size swing arm press is the first step towards our goal of equipping the Red Onion to be able to produce full size pages for our book publication project. A Reliance press uses the same method of printing that was invented by Gutenberg in the 1400’s. The first book press was a wooden press, ours is metal and much heavier, but in every other respect it is the same. We plan to film each step of the process. Look for this episode soon!
