The Press represents Freedom and the tremendous impact that the printed word has had on the history of civilization. The machine was designed to be hand inked and operated by a single person, producing one unique print at a time. The Press draws inspiration from the forms of antique presses and as commissioned by Compass Books to celebrate the reopening of Terminal 2 at SFO Airport, in April 2011.
