This Is a Printing Office

Crossroads of civilisation

uuuuuuuuRefuge of all the arts against the ravages of time

uuuuuuuuArmoury of fearless truth, against whispering rumours

Incessant trumpet of trade

From this place words may fly abroad

uuuuuuuuNot to perish on waves of sound

uuuuuuuuNot to vary with the writer's hand

uuuuuuuuBut fixed in time having been verified in proof

Friend you stand on sacred ground

This is a printing office.

- Beatrice Warde
