The Smell of Old Wood, Paper and Ink

This is the 101st Hi There Hammy post! Woot! In honor of this momentous occasion, here is a sweet video from Craftzine, of the Sao Paulo printing press Grafica Fidalga. These men use a gorgeous old press from 1929 and hand cut wood letters to print with. The way that press moves is so so beautiful. I can almost smell the ink and paper just looking at it.
