Press room update–new furniture!

   Posted by: rring

On Sunday we had a new piece of equipment delivered for the little press room–a metal cabinet that will hold two dozen cases of type, which is dual-sided (that is, two compositors can stand and compose simultaneously), and has a rack above the case for leading (spaces between lines) of different sizes.

All of the empty drawers are a promise–once we figure out what sorts of fonts we need, we can buy new ones, which will generally be better to print from than older type.

Here’s another angle on the new cabinet, as well as the small Vandercook that we will be getting in January (no automatic inking here–we’ll be inking by hand!)
