Last night I gave a geeky presentation at the Wells College Book Arts Center. Before I had kids I spent a lot of time in Morgan Hall, but had fallen out of touch in the years since. Walking in the front door for the first time in six (or so) years was surprisingly emotional. It felt good to be back.

My talk was entitled “Type High Tech” and delved into how Boxcar Press has embraced software development to support its letterpress printing. In that spirit, I present the Heidelbot. All tweets are assembled by a (print-savvy) Twitterbot that pulls language from Heidelberg press manuals at Letterpress Commons:

Hope you enjoy the printing manual of the future!
