Press For Sale, Some Assembly Required

April Fools. This is no heavy metal printing press. It is an actual 1896 paper facsimile of a Globe Quadruple printing press and was was part of a supplement to the Boston Globe Newspaper in August of that same year. The Exile Bibliophile features an identical copy of the same DIY press on his Flickrstream. With instructions, each part can be cut out and assembled into a scale replica of the Globe printing press. Parts and cheap labor included.
