The Art of the Printing Press

Part of my Dad's type collection.

If you were following my blog back before I joined blogspot, you might remember a post I did about my Dad's Arab Platen Printing Press. (If you haven't seen it, go have a look at it with bigger pictures here - it's a fascinating insight into a world long forgotten.)

So, why do I mention it now? Well, my Dad was on Britain's Heritage Heroes on BBC2 tonight. You can see John Craven and Jules Hudson arrive at Gwasg G (one of the multiple places Dad helps out with) at about 12:07, and my Dad comes on about 15:10, and helps John Craven print his name using a proofing press! Very exciting to see the art of the printing press being given time on TV.
