Trouble at Quebecor


A Christmas tradition


  1. The Flickr set of type foundry book covers was posted to a book arts list that I subscribe to. I started drooling. Want! Want! Back in my youth (a few years ago…….ahem), I worked for various printing presses in SF. These books were laying all over the place, considered useless because the printers were using the lino presses, not hot type any more. I could have picked up boxes full but what did I know? The folly of youth.
