Master Printer Louis F. Dow Shows Off Fulwood Press in Wynwood (Photos)

Printmaking's been going on since ancient Mesopotamians used round cylinder seals on clay tablets. Later, Asians innovated woodblock prints on silk and fabrics. Then, Europeans got in on it. Today, there's etching, engraving, monotypes, lithographs, mezzotints, aquatints, screenprints, and more. Plus the cranking gears and crushing force of a steel American printing press stamping ink into paper.

Master Printer Louis F. Dow of Fulwood Press in Wynwood knows a hell of a lot about it. He's been running a two-press studio for over 30 years.
