If you have any experience or interest in Letterpress Printing, this is definately a must-visit on your next trip to Florida. Five minutes off of Highway 19, about an hour north of Tampa, it's well worth the drive. This shop has everything from Hand-set lead Foundry Type to a working Linotype, tiny little Balitimore and Kelsey "boy's presses" to a 10x15 Chandler & price - and two Pearls!.
During my visit, I had a pleasant visit with the curator, Jim Anderson, and took 30 photographs in the museum. I've only placed five here for right now, but will be adding more as soon as I take the time for editing and to create thumbnails. For now, this will have to do.

This guy has done what I have only dreamed of, but with such inspiration, the Excelsior Press Museum will become a reality as well...
