We visited the Museum of Printing 13.11.2019 20:02

Years 2 and 3 went on an exciting journey to the past - 150 years back!
We visited the Museum of Printing and got the idea what typography is and how the publishing house worked at the end of the XIX century.
We were really surprised to learn how many people it took to make a newspaper or a magazine.
How did they type text and what tools and mechanisms did they use? Now we know!
The excursion ended with creating a real book by ourselves using the old typography techniques. Young publishers did really well! Check out some photos!
