Brussels Print Shop

Many thanks to Flickr user Robert Clerebaut for allowing these photographs of his father's print shop in Brussels, Belgium, to be used on Metal Type

Robert said: "My father started as a typesetter in 1928. He opened his print shop in Brussels in 1937. I studied at the School Amsterdamse Grafische (1956-1960) and worked in the family print shop in Brussels. In addition, I gave over 13 years at the National School of Visual Arts of La Cambre (1993-2005). Since 1980 member of the Rencontres Internationales de Lure, and I met Francois Boltana.
