I love seeing old technology like this at work even in today’s age. Sure, I am a technology lover and wouldn’t want to have to print everything like this, but as an art form (and a complex technology in its own right) it is amazing to watch both the process and the results. — Douglas
 
Digg traveled to Bowne and Co. Stationers, two fully-functioning 19th century letterpress printing shops in NYC, to see how manuscripts, invitations, advertisements, and other paper goods were printed before you could just press a button and have something spit out results.
With a foot in the contemporary world and a foot in the historic, Bowne and Co. bridges the past and the present with handmade pieces made for the modern era with stunning results.

What’s the role of salt in cooking? Is it important to add it at certain times? Most recipes (and culinary schools) advise seasoning food with salt early in the cooking process, not just at the end. We decided to investigate this conventional wisdom to see if the timing of seasoning makes a notable difference.
