Etching press by Yukié Matsushita

I bought this antique etching press (late 19th century) from my artist friend Jean Luneau two summers ago. I took some etching workshops with Jean in Touraine and I used to work with this press. Jean bought it from his professor George Gobo in 1952, and this was his first etching press. Jean was going to sell it to a museum however one day I dreamed of having this press and for some reasons the museum person never came to pick it up, so now it is in our Paris apartment. 

For making some linoleum prints I am putting the press to work. 
The theme of the show is "Blanc" (White), the titles of pieces I am working are "White Horse" and "White Mountain.
