During the second block break Colin went on a bit of a road trip down to New Mexico and visited Tom Leech at the Press of the Palace of the Governors. "Situated in rooms adjoining the nearly 400-year-old courtyard of the Palace of the Governors is the Print Shop and Bindery, known as the Palace Print Shop, or, more formally, as the Press of the Palace of the Governors. A living Museum of New Mexico exhibit dedicated to the history of the state's printing traditions, the Print Shop offers some 70,000 yearly visitors an opportunity to relive the lively environment of 19th century publishing." Extensive historical information is available on their website.
Tom Leech, printer.
Tom's assistant, James.
