Things you didn't think you'd get to do as a librarian...here I am today at @as220printshop on the Vandercook press making prints of a collection of type blocks we have from the RI Economic Development office. There are over 300 blocks from the 1920s-50s and this is the first time in a very long time they've been printed. Each image is like a mystery. Eventually the images will be available to researchers and the blocks will be able to be checked out by local printers for their own use.
@fisherlibrary was printing yesterday too! @mmvk per your request.
