Printing demonstrations during the museum visit

How was printing done in Plantin’s time? See for yourself in the museum.

During a printing demonstration you will find out all about printing with lead type. How are letters made, how do you use them to make up sentences and how do you fix them into place?

How is the ink applied and how does it all end up on paper?

If the printers are at work, be sure to watch them for a while, and feel free to ask them questions.
