Arion Press is the last printing press in the US where books are handmade from start to finish. Using machines and techniques that date back to the 1800s, these books can take years to make and cost up to $10,000 to buy. Set against the tech hub backdrop of San Francisco, this institution helps keep the traditional craft of letterpress printing alive.

How Books Are Handmade At The Last Printing Press Of Its Kind In The US | Still Standing

  • This is long.....

  • Dads been a printer for 40+ years working on machine that were older when he started then he is now. Shops closing up in the next few years because the same 4 people who have worked there for decades are retiring and no one wants to take over. I keep badgering him to ask boss man about buying some of the machines as the owner has already stated he dosnt know what hes gonna do with them after they close. I dont think either my dad or boss man realize how much those machines, or the knowledge they have, are worth. Im kind of upset with myself i didnt learn more when i would visit the shop. It was a great place. The smell of ink, paper, grease, and dust.. So satisfying watching them clean the rollers or the pages getting spit out. Im gonna miss that old shop.

  • Yes, it may be traditional, but it's tedious, and time consuming. This is why modern day printing is taking over. It's just way more efficient.

  • For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3: 16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. Mark 16: 16 “.....Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.” Matthew 3: 2
