Products description

The museum’s collection of around 100 working machines and presses for historical casting, composing and printing techniques really brings the history of printing alive. With combining a museum and an active workshop, visitors still can experience printing processes at first hand. The Museum of the Printing Arts also houses a handcraft bookbindery, a workshop of a wood engraver and a unique collection of more than 4,000 different typefaces from European and oriental provenance.
