16 Mar From Cyder to Cyber
Inspired by the medieval paper press and Mediterranean fruit/olive press, the first printing press featured a long handle that was used to turn a large wooden screw. These early presses would apply pressure to the paper to transfer ink, yielding 250, one-sided sheets of paper per hour. These early models remained popular for over 300 years.
Today, many forms of print have been transposed to the web. Magazines, books, and more available online, but print isn’t dead. As a reader myself, there’s nothing that can compare to holding a physical copy of your favourite book or magazine in one hand and with a glass of cider in the other. Cheers!
