The Printing Press - Dr John Holmes

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:18 pm on 25 October 2012

Tucked inside the University of Otago Library, there is a room dedicated to keeping history, and a process that dates back to the 15th century, alive. The Otakou Press Room was established more than 50 years ago to keep the art of printing on letterpresses going. Dr John Holmes is a Medical Officer of Health on the Otago District Health Board and this year's Printer in Residence.
