Re: [BKARTS] Switzerland and Brussels



In Basle, be sure to visit the Basle Paper Museum. Not only do they still 
make paper, they also cast type and sell books.

In Belgium, try to visit the Plantin-Moretus Museum in Antwerp. Examples of 
early books, presses and typecasting.

All good for knowledge about what books and printing are/were really all 
about.
