Here you can learn about the history of the written and printed word from hieroglyphics to those ancient artifacts we call typewriters. You can experience books in all their varieties, from antique editions to pop-up and miniature books.
The adjoining Press Room contains two replica and three antique presses, in addition to many examples of typeset and tools used in printing.
