CENP STUDENTS VISIT MUNICIPAL PRINTING PRESS

On 2 November, 2nd year Graphic Design students carried out a visit to Madrid’s Municipal Printing Press as part of the complimentary activities prescribed in the course Printed Typography.

The facilities continue to accommodate the artistic and artisan printing and binding workshops, as well as an important museum that shows the evolution of the printing, typesetting, engraving and binding processes. From a Gutenberg’s true press reproduction to the beautiful machines of the 19th and 20th century, the visit is an interesting opportunity to observe and feel the elements that have made the book become an ordinary and accessible object of knowledge for over five and a half centuries.

We wish to thank the staff at the Press for their kindness and for all their detailed explanations.
