      might be of interest to those who enjoy viewing historical artifacts
      in somewhat of a context. Most of the posts do have to do with
      printing history simply because visual imaging of historical matter
      involves some form of printing process. This blog is enormously
      successful because the unidentifiable owner has an extremely eclectic
      approach to the subject and provides an enormous amount of eye candy
      for the similarly inclined.

      Of closer interest to letterpress is

      whose unidentifiable but obviously very scholarly owner,
      unfortunately, seems to have slowed down a bit.


      Always worth a late night look see.

        It's obviously the formidable James Mosley, past librarian at St.
        Bride Library and currently teaching at the University of Reading. (If
        the signatures on some of the posts and the email address weren't
        enough, the wide readng and research interests would peg it as either
        a very smart British researcher, a student of Mosley or one of his
        students.

        When Mosley spoke to APHA on receiving their individual award a few
        years ago, and he had some biographical comments that were quite
        interesting:
