      Theo Rehak has Victor Hammer's press and might know what rollers he used.
      One thing I do know is that he used ingenious roller bearers that could be
      lifted out of the form after inking each impression without disturbing the
      lock-up.

      Hey Alex

      More importantly, what ink did he use? Best hand presswork I've ever seen.
