The art of print, it's something that we just take for granted in this day and age. But, to see the history of print and all that had to be overcome in order to attain such a privilege, Musee de l'Imprimerie has comprehensively laid open for any who would see, the ingenious endeavor producing a book, a newspaper or, even a common magazine truly can be. So much power in the press!

A very well curated history of printing and design - and much more interesting than you might think. The labels are in French and English, and bursting with fascinating bits of information. The building is also wonderful .

This museum was on my list of places to get to while in the city and it was not a disappointment. They have a beautiful collection of artifacts presented in a chronological format. There are also English panels for those who have limited French. There is an amazing amount of history all squeezed into a beautiful old building as well. Even if you are not knowledgeable about the history of printing and communications it worth the visit for sure
