A little bit of Fry and Gutenberg
Found this video, a BBC 4 documentary on Gutenberg, hosted by Stephen Fry. Not only does he traipse around Deutchland in the footsteps of the Gutmeister, he participates in a recreation of a Gutenberg-styled press, cutting puches and casting type, even making paper. Totally old school.
I think sometimes I was destined to be some sort of craftsman. Digital type just ain’t gonna cut it (no pun intended).
