The Cranston Press

Our working Cranston Press stands close to 8 feet tall and few still exist nationwide. This press is capable of producing prints of up to 24-by-36 inches, the size of a full newspaper spread. It is a rare privilege to have access to a huge letterpress like this and a wonder to see it in action.
