    I loved the first book in this series. However, this time around, I've found myself getting utterly bored out of my head by the constant printing chat. I don't care. I actually don't. If I wanted to learn about 19th century print techniques I would have sought a book on just that topic. If you're going to re-edit this, and I strongly suggest you do, then chop the filler material and stick to the story.
