Cornucopia, WI – Michael Coughlin didn’t know it, but he picked a great time to buy old printing presses. Lined up side by side in his print shop in this tiny Bayfield County community on the shore of Lake Superior are eight letterpresses and one offset press dating from the 1880s to the 1960s. There’s also a Linotype machine, large cases containing metal and wood type in various sizes and fonts, and a book-binding machine with four spools of white thread on top.” Read the full article in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
