Interviews Day 1 (20th July 2010)

Yesterday was my first day of Interviews. I had the opportunity to interview D.H. Shankar of Archana Printers in Sourastrapet. He owns a letterpress but also does offset and screen printing. He has been a practitioner of letterpress for 30yrs.
Below is a video from the interview. Here he is explaining how a manual numbering machine works.

I also interview some block makers ( makers of copper+zinc plates for letterpress printing) and saw an old letterpress printing machine that had now been converted into a hot foiling machine.
