One of the more popular curiosities was recently acquired by the museum: An awkward-looking platen press with a unique inking process. Each time the ink plate rotates, to maintain even ink distribution across the plate and the inking rollers, it rotates exactly ninety degrees. The press also looks like the sort of furniture that might hold a wet umbrella and prevent a puddle of rain from forming on the floor. In no time, the staff will have researched its provenance and hopefully learned more about the reasoning behind its quirky attributes.
