NORTH ANDOVER – For some people, the world’s gradual transition from ink on paper to pixels is fraught with emotion. But there’s one place north of Boston where print still reigns supreme.
The Museum of Printing across the street from the common in North Andover is a little-known treasure trove of presses, type, typesetters, and other vintage equipment.
“There’s a renaissance in letterpress printing,” driven by artists and hobbyists, said museum president Frank Romano.
The museum’s biggest day of the year comes on Father’s Day Sunday with the 10th annual Printing Arts Fair, featuring steamroller printing. And that’s not some archaic pressman’s term. We’re talking a real steamroller here. In the driveway. Printing. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
The Museum of Printing is at 800 Massachusetts Ave., North Andover. Admission is $8, $5 for children, students, and seniors, and free to members. Regular hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays, but the museum is open Sunday during the same hours for the fair. For information, go to museumofprinting.org or e-mail email@example.com.
