Print Is Not Dead!

  • The Armarie Room 87 Atawhai Drive Nelson New Zealand (map)

A short guided tour that showcases our rich print history and the impressive machinery developed over centuries to bring print to the masses. We have ex-industry and master printers joining us at The Armarie Room to guide you through the cultural legacy of fine press printing. There will be a chance to roll up your sleeves and use one of our vintage hand presses. This is also an opportunity to watch our unique linotypes purr into action - a steampunk version of the modern day computer.

Tours run for approximately 20 minutes; maximum group size 8 people.
