Letterpress Music

In the same vein as films with presses:

Has anyone ever heard any song that mentions printing or letterpress?

There was a love song recorded by George Hamilton IV entitled “If I Possessed a Printing Press”. It was in both 78 rpm and 45 rpm.

Thanks! That was a fun song.

I’m working on a film about typefounding right now…I don’t know if I will be able to distribute it, but if i can, I will muscle through the licensing mess of UMG to use it.

“The Printer’s Song” still tugs at my heartstrings. But it’s mostly directed towards an old offset press…
