Daddy Returns From the Printing Plant With Videos of Actual Robots
Child awed by miracle of newspaper production
Let me first say: If you ever hoped to be inspired by the majesty of newspapers, you could not do better than to visit the New York Times printing plant in Flushing at 8:30 in the evening. It reminds you of everything we are holding onto in journalism, and everything that we have lost. It is also a very cool place full of very cool people who have been working on something very impossible every single day for as long as anybody can remember.
It is also full of robots and things that spin at some ungodly speed in the service of printed news. Kina would absolutely love it.
Wait until she sees how 4 colors of ink make all the colors she sees in the newspaper! And ooohhh the smell of the ink! I have done packaging production for 25 years now. It's been really fun getting artwork on the press and playing with the colors to get it right!
I LOVE these Daily Kina. Can't wait to meet her in person!
