|The sweet smell of web-printed ink.|
|Blue ink smells like ... heaven!|
|Colors galore ... all with different smells.|
|A single linotype slug that reads backwards.|
But, I was a young printer who could smell the nearby odors of printer's ink that to this day still linger in my nose and mind. Eventually, after setting up the printshop in the high school Industrial Arts wing in the late 1960s, I was in heaven once again. So, why wouldn't I automatically open any new magazine or brochure to take a long whiff of those odors that have been part of my life since childhood. I know it may sound corny, buy I love the smell on ink on paper and no matter how many times my wife tells me its going to make me sick, habits are hard to break. It was another extraordinary day in the life of an ordinary guy.
