Sunday afternoon was spent up in North Andover, MA, where we enjoyed two events in tandem: the "Hot Type and Cool Books" exhibition at the Museum of Printing and a sheep shearing festival on the town common. The printing exhibit was, of course, fascinating. It took us from letter press on up to current DTP setups, with a lot of stuff in between. I was a little bit disappointed with the exhibition, however - seemed more like a church bazaar than anything else.

When we'd seen enough of the Printing Museum, we sloshed around the common a bit - looked at the stuff they had for sale there and saw a border collie demonstration. I'd never seen them in action before, and was very impressed.

Since neither of us was feeling well, we decided to head home directly and take it easy.
