Thank you, Johannes Gutenberg for inventing the technic to print with interchangeable letters and making books an affordable good.
The photo shows old moveable letters from an old print shop.
This is my contribution to this weeks photo challenge at The daily Post, called “Letters”.

Our daughter is in printmaking and the school has a press. I helped the type one day and that’s challenging, as many of them are so tiny!!
That’s true, Janet. And I’m glad for not having to do it myself. Once that was a profession here: typesetter!
It was a profession everywhere! Lots of work and smudged fingers.
How true. 🙂
What a fantastic photo, I love the texture of the moveable letters. Great entry!
