mmmm mm mmmmm.....

I stumbled into an antique store today...




And apparently Detroit used to be quite the print shop hot spot...






McNess had an ointment that would fix everything from chickens to acne (yet obviously not racism)...




Elaborate and intricate illustrations were the norm...




Books were hardbound.
Pages deckled.
and itty bitty type was hand-set.

I should have been born a hundred years ago.
