Hard Pressed


Yes, it's look-I-bought-more-cards time.

These are a bit different to the usual fare, though:

I bought them from someone who printed them on a manual printing press at the Gutenberg museum in Mainz in 1974. The blocks used were originals from the 18th century; the paper and ink are modern (well, 1974-modern).

I don't know what you'd really call them: they're not reproductions, but it's hard to call them originals either.

Bah, who cares? I bought them because I liked the look of them, and they're the closest I'll ever get to holding the real thing.
