Quercus Press

I'm a geek, if you haven't noticed. Ben just sent me over this video on Vimeo of a dude out east who reproduced a Websters dictionary from 1898. As a letterpress printer, bookbinder and lover of dingbats I just think this is one of the coolest things in the world....and the name of his press is Quercus! Does it get any better?!
