Old Printing Press in Monochrome
Lith: Selenium/Gold rendering applied to image of an antique printing press. The Selenium toner produces a rich brown in the shadows; the Gold toner results in delicate blues in the highlights. The aged concept was accentuated with the use of a damaged-look border. The machine here is a Babcock Printing Press, a cylinder press typical of those used by small-town, weekly newspapers in the United States prior to the modern era of the computer. This model is in the offices of the Cross Plains Review in Cross Plains, Texas. It was purchased around 1909. A concrete slab was laid to handle the heavy unit, and the floor was then built around it. This press could print two pages at a time at a rate of about 700 pages per hour.
