Nick ‘Slowcoast’ Hand and his friend Robin Mather built a bicycle to carry a small printing press. They then cycled it through England, France and Germany to the home of modern printing, to Mainz in Germany where Gutenberg invented the thing that changed the world (at least as much as the computerwould five hundred years later) in 1440. On the way printing postcards of work by friends, artists and poets. Nick kept a blog, you can read it here.
