This is Not a Bookshelf!

There are many ways to make a print. I am standing on a shelf with stone tablets that are used in printmaking. These limestone blocks were brought from a special quarry in Germany by an artist who was in the Army there. To make a print, you would use sharp tools to carve into the stone, then put a greasy substance on the stone, lay paper on it, and then run it through a press.
