This computer graphic drawing is the result of a translation of one of Leonardo Da Vinci's technical machine drawings. It's beautiful (I want one!) but it isn't known if any of the machines were actually constructed. Of course this printing press fascinates me since I use a press to make most of my prints. Here, the press was slowly lowered by the worm screw and printed the sheet of paper placed under the carriage. My press uses rollers to make a print.
You can see this and other drawings in the book "Leonardo's Machines" by Taddei, Zanon and Laurenza.
