Ink printing at APH. 

APH was founded to emboss books in tactile alphabets, but the company also needed traditional in-house printing capability to print instruction manuals, reports, labels for Talking Book records, and to “foil-stamp” book covers. This exhibit explores the machines in the Ink Print Department at the Printing House.
