Museum of Printing
15 Thornton Avenue, Haverhill, MA 01832 - United States
Preserving the history of graphic arts, printing and typesetting technology, and printing craftsmanship in Haverhill, Massachusetts.
Join us for a free, fun day of activities for the whole family. Watch cool printing demonstrations, print your name in the Alphabet Factory, type on a vintage typewriter, cast your name in hot metal and take a turn cranking out your own Certificate on a Vandercook press. And you can shop! Vendors will be selling letterpress printed paper goods, lovely antiquarian and new books, and antique printing-related tools and things.
