Warren Chappell, the 20th century type designer, once said "the flood of print has turned reading into a process of gulping rather than savoring."

It's remarkable then to look at this antique letterpress type cabinet and ponder the way things used to be - the grinding pace of building a block of text letter by letter, the ink-stained fingers, the eye strain.

If only for the reminder to slow down every once and a while, this letterpress would be a wonderfully unique piece to own, especially if you're a writer, editor, or just a lover of the printed word!
