Having been for almost 50 years in printing industry, from letterpress to offset and digital. I always was interested to learn a lot about the unique communication techniques of typesetting, reproducing, printing and finishing from the early beginnings up to now. AEPM helped me a lot to meet very knowledgeable persons and institutions. I also have a small collection of books and machinery from that period. Having been AEPM-treasurer for over ten years, I handed over this duty as of 01. January 2017 in coordination with the acting AEPM-board.
