The Mackenzie Printery & Newspaper Museum will be joining us for our event on July 14th: The Celebration of the Forty and Quilt Exhibition. They will be bringing an Adana Table Top Printing Press for demonstrations. Letterpress is the original print methodology and was commercially viable right up to the introduction of digital technology in the late 1970s. The Museum’s Chairman will be around all day to chat with guests about historic printing techniques, as well as the Mackenzie Printery building in Queenston which dates back to the early 19th century. Here is a picture of the letterpress:
