Sad • 11 June 2008 • The SnowBlog


For reasons that aren't easy to explain but involve the idea that one day I'd quite like to have a 4 colour printing press in my back garden, complete with a man in blue overalls to operate it, I subscribe to a newsfeed about printing presses, and their sale, auction and exchange. And this rather sad thing came into my in box today: the auction of Butler and Tanner's machines (click below to see the details). A sad day. sale.jpg


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
