I’m exploring the world around me for a photo worth a thousand words… to help aid me with my word count. My adventuring and over-active imagination has led me to snapping and sharing the following image for this week.
About the photo:
Out at the Clark County Museum in Henderson, NV I entered an 1890-1900 replica of a local Print Shop. Inside, I found this early 1900′s Book Binding Press. I can imagine the men who might have stood over such a built-to-last piece of equipment. The press still exists long after those men have passed, and I wonder if it’s a possibility that in the future, this press will still exist in this museum- in an era where all new books are digital? Being a little old-fashioned, I hope in my lifetime I’ll always know the feeling of holding a brand-new hardback book in my hands.
