The Efficacious Word

Another 'not exactly a postcard' offering --- but an interesting souvenir picked up in Lewes, Sussex, the other week when we were staying in Brighton. Talked to the man who runs the Tom Paine Printing Press (it's on the High Street): he'd devised this broadsheet.  Just before he decamped for the 13 Colonies, Tom Paine lived and wrote in the house across the street.

For typophiles especially.   Click to enlarge.
