New Book Press

25 juli 2013

Yesterday I bought a really good and very heavy bookpress. The press has been manufactured
by Karl Krause from Leipzig – Germany. This company was founded in 1855 and has been very
important for the development of bookbinding. Karl Krause invented new devices for stack cutting, book presses and cardboard scissors.
Unfortunately I can’t find any information on the internet about H.B. Ydo Machinehandel, the Dutch firm that sold this press.

    I don't know, but when we moved it … it was a hell of a job 🙂
