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 are you going to read today?

Free books?!?! Yes, Free books!. Art books, at that. What are you waiting for? — Douglas
 
 
Tomes of work by Picasso, Kandinsky, Lichtenstein, Flavin, Klimt, Rothko, and more are as good as yours.
 
A veritable art history degree’s worth of books digitized by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum are now available for free.

There’s Wassily Kandinsky’s 1946 treatise, On the Spiritual in Art; books about movements from the Italian metamorphosis and Russian Constructivism; thousands of years of Aztec and Chinese art; and catalogs of work by the many greats to pass through the Guggenheim’s Frank Lloyd Wright-designed halls. Formerly locked in paper prisons (a.k.a., hard-copy books), analysis of work by Pablo Picasso, Roy Lichtenstein, Dan Flavin, Robert Rauschenberg, Gustav Klimt, Mark Rothko, and more is now free to roam the web as PDFs and ePubs.
