Ri Xing Type Foundry
103, Taiwan, 台北市大同區朝陽里
For All Types in TaipeiTucked in a narrow alleyway lined with dimly lit offices and industrial workshops, Ri Xing Type Foundry houses one of the world’s last sets of traditional character molds for lead-type printing. Arrange a tour to watch owner Chang Chieh-kuan create letters by injecting molten metal into copper molds before setting them in a movable-type printing press. Don’t forget your translator.
