We have been looking for a proper book press for about four months, most we've found are not in good condition. Good things come to those who wait, and we found two fantastic book presses from Uncommon Market antique store in Dallas.
Joseph first came home with this press! It's absolutely beautiful!
We went back to the antique store and picked up this little beauty! There were several presses there; it was fun to see so many in one place. The gentleman at the antique store told us his buyers travel to England, France, Belgium, and Holland to find their wonderful antiques.
The book presses look beautiful on our piano, don't you think?
