体育外围/梅格·麦克唐纳

凸版抽屉是一种有隔层的薄木托盘. These drawers were part of a larger printing cabinet that were common between the 15th and 19th centuries. The small sections store letter stamps or "sorts" that were used in a printing press for relief printing. 凸版抽屉也称为铅字盒, 类型的抽屉, 打印机块抽屉, 和打印机的托盘. 

Some people are lucky enough to find a tray or an entire cabinet in their attic, but this is a much less common occurrence since the popularity (and cost) of this antique has increased. 如今, 古董爱好者 search high and low at antique shops for the chance to own one. Some people even buy reproduction printers blocks to achieve the look.

These letterpress drawer ideas will help you transform the tray you already have or inspire you to go out and find one yourself.

    The book explains how science classifies objects and teaches children what to do with specimens they find. What's especially fun about the book is that it teaches kids how to create their own cabinet by preserving things like crab shells, 罗宾的鸡蛋, 甚至还有蜘蛛标本. 

    这种想法并不局限于儿童. Collect miniature objects on your travels and create your own whimsical cabinet.
