From The Typographer's Dream.


MARGARET
The typographer’s dream: Ink on paper.
To typeset a book. To have a civilized deadline. To work at a slower pace. Oh. To see the metal type kiss the paper. To use quality ink on archival acid-free paper. To have time stop.
Pause.
I’ve got a book that was printed in the seventeen century. It’s still good.
