    Default PRINTING: Letterpress, Linotype, Linocut, etc

    Just wondering if there is anyone here who does any of these types of printing here?
    I have developed an Internet in it and am looking to try my hand at some. So while im looking for gear im thinking to start with a print in my book press.

    I did my apprenticeship as a comp, finished the apprenticeship, did nasho and by the time I came out there were no jobs because of the changes and the Sydney newspapers were laying off employees by the hundreds. What a waste of five years! I was in the leading group who learned what became photo composition but it was a black art in those days. Comps did all the stuff from linocut to to Linotype and hand composition and I hated every minute of it.
