In Morelia, the old spanish colonial capital, we stayed with Erandi. We wanted to get something printed during our trip in Mexico, so she took us to a printers she had spotted and we did a 3 days print session on his 1891 US led press.
Its was a great experience. We composed postcards with the led blocks that were lying around his workshop and Harry also designed a poster.
First we drove off to buy the paper.
Then we chose our blocks and made a composition, which was secured within a wood frame.
His mastership, the press…
and the results…
The postacrds were drawn up and sent to friends back home. A couple went on to being exhibited an exhibition Erandi was putting up in Morelia.

Volapük is a constructed language, created in 1879-1880 by Johann Martin Schleyer, a Catholic priest in Baden, Germany. Schleyer felt that God had told him in a dream to create an international language. Volapük conventions took place in 1884 (Friedrichshafen), 1887 (Munich), and 1889 (Paris). The first two conventions used German, and the last conference used only Volapük. In 1889, there were an estimated 283 clubs, 25 periodicals in or about Volapük, and 316 textbooks in 25 languages.
Schleyer adapted the vocabulary mostly from English, with a smattering of German and French, and often modified it beyond easy recognizability. “vol” and “pük” are derived from the English words “world” and “speak”.
