Here are a few more images from Stefania's laboratory Librare. The drawers of metal things are actually drawers of metal fonts. I remember there are several on just Bodoni. This is old school printing press stuff, she even has Gutenberg-ish wood blocks (possibly inherited from her father) and a paper chopping machine from the 50s that still works today (chops up to 10cm thick paper and thats how you get even sides on books).
|Try not to cut your hand. You don't want to hear the horror stories of paper choppers.|
|One of the prettiest portraits I've ever seen by Walter Paoletti. I think he did a splendid job portraying Stefania.|
Happy friday and don't forget to look up at the night sky - full moooon in full swiingg!
