Here is a short video of our very own barener Andy English printing a wedding invitation on his 1902 Albion press.
This short video shows a homemade press that can be used for letterpress and possibly other forms of relief printmaking. Pretty ingenious and inexpensive design.
Here is a very nice documentary about letterpress and the tools and equipment required.
