Introduce

“Tangfu Printing Press” can be found next to Jhongsing Station at Sinying Sugar Refinery. Established more than 60 years ago, it is home to the only complete movable-type printing press in Taiwan along with 80,000 lead type. It serves as a witness to the movable-type printing culture of Taiwan. The type casting machine, copper molds, letter press, printing press, proofreading machine and forms are now classified as cultural objects of general historic significance by Tainan City.

A DIY workshop is now available for visitors to try their hand at block printing. A tour guide is also assigned to the movable-type printing display to introduce visitors to the printing press, the history of movable-type and its stories. The cultural assets hidden away for more than six decades at Tangfu Museum will re-introduce everyone to the magic of printing with metal type so that its history and memories will live on.
