Block Printing Wallpaper / Lever Operated Press

In a recent discission we touched on second-class- lever operated presses, and block printing of wallpaper. Here is a GREAT video that shows how it is done, along with a couple of good views of the lever press.

While not completely applicable to letterpress, a LOT of the techniques are usable, such as woodblock carving, creating your own coated paper, and so forth.

Personally, I love the process and have one of the lever machines in my storage building. It works GREAT for printing posters.
