              Along with the TBZH Print Shop at the Miss. Agriculture & Forestry Museum is the
              State 4-H headquarters and its little museum.  I'd very much like to find some nice
              old cuts relating to 4-H in order to print some things for them.  Any suggestions or
              directions will be appreciated.

                Those are fine ideas.  Actually, I have about 200 images of early
                presses in QuarkExpress shows, but I'm looking for things that

                There are some photos on Flickr.com http://www.flickr.com/groups/handpress/pool/ which you might want

                to look at; other images can be found in books probably available in your University Library which show a

                lot of historic presses with line graphics & that might be better for the size you are looking for. Look for

                Moran, James: Printing presses: history & development from the fifteenth century to modern times.

                Berkeley, University of California Press , 1973 [paperback edition 1978]. These can be scanned & used

                for a poster better than a photograph.
