Ben Franklin's Printing Office


Ran and I stepped back in time this weekend and took a tour of Ben Franklin's Print Shop and Bindery. Whether you are a local or tourist, I highly recommend experiencing this incredible display of printing history.


Applying the ink.


Placing the paper.


Pressing the paper onto the blocks of type.


The finished product! Anyone up for an episode of John Adams?

    Wow! These images remind me when I was at Colonial Williamsburg this past Christmas, they were showing us how they made all the printed material in the past. He seems to be using the same old fashion technique. How cool is that?!!
