Arion Press is the last printing press in the US where books are handmade from start to finish. Using machines and techniques that date back to the 1800s, these books can take years to make and cost up to $10,000 to buy. Set against the tech hub backdrop of San Francisco, this institution helps keep the traditional craft of letterpress printing alive.

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3: 16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. Mark 16: 16 “.....Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.” Matthew 3: 2

This is nice for a video, a museum, or a tourist attraction. But i'm glad that knowledge is no longer as expensive and way more accessible. That's what is shortening the gap between the rich and the poor.

Letterpress isn't the only "traditional" printing method. It's the oldest but not the only one. Can't trust business journalists to get history right

My Grandfather was a linotypist (type caster) and he and my Grandmother had their own letterpress business in the 1950’s. I’m so happy they are preserving this art! I think there are 2 working type casting machines in the US if not the world that I’ve heard of.
