Book Themed Travel: the Musée de l’imprimerie de Lyon


So I spent Easter in Lyon, France where I was able to visit the Musée de l’imprimerie de Lyon. It was a really amazing museum, and I spent several hours nerding out over the history of fonts and printing machines. Here are some pictures that I took whilst at the museum. If you’re ever in Lyon and are a lover of all things word related, then this is a must see.
