Thanks for showing. Hope I get one, one day.
Here is a pretty neat copper printers block that I recently got from auction at eBay. This block depicts a Sangamo Special watch, and shows how advertising was done in the "Olden Days".
This picture is the way the block print looks when you are looking straight into it. Everything is backwards!
This picture was mirrored to show what a
finished print would look like.
Now that defines "COOL" Phil!
Thanks for sharing it.
wondering where that printer block went...... congrats....
