The World of Letterpress
The Briar Press
All things letterpress, including an online museum of presses & classified ads.
The Museum Plantin-Moretus welcomes you to its web site, in which we would like to guide you through 300 years of printing activity. The atmosphere of a real printing business, where the smell of paper and ink blends with the sound of the platen*, fiercely pushed on the press, cannot be conveyed in this virtual visit. To savour it, you should come and pay a real visit to this old Antwerp printing facility.
