Another Interesting Unique Event

Strange Typographic Tales
Discover strange stories, legends & tales of type! Dedicated to preserving the history of the graphic arts, graphic design, printing equipment and printing craftsmanship, The Museum of Printing holds the most extensive collection of materials and machines east of the Mississippi River.  Explore the museum and experience the evolution of printing from Gutenberg's invention of movable type to your personal portable phone or tablet; advancements in printing and type technologies have been the predecessors to changes in civilizations. Industry expert and President of the Museum of Printing Frank Romano will share some of the strange typographic tales that he has collected in his travels around the world. 

Join us to learn the history of type that your teacher never taught you and the type designs that we see every day! Reserve online, or call Essex Heritage at 978-740-0444.
