‘Fourneau Saint-Michel’ is the name of a series of museums in Saint-Hubert – Belgium. One of them is an open air museum about the rural life in the south of Belgium. Their collection of old buildings includes a small print shop or ‘imprimerie’. It really is a tiny place – one single room that is barely big enough to hold a press and some type case cabinets.
Here is a detail from that press, showing the poster that is ready to be printed.
It was a beautiful day and light was streaming through the large windows.
It was pretty difficult to take decent shots of the room, so let’s finish with a picture from the building down the road. Back in the 1920′s this small school may have been a customer of the Imprimerie.
