Dear all,

My name is Violin Tomov. I am from Sofia, Bulgaria. My grandfather (1899 - 1976) was a bookbinder. I still keep 3 very old machines from his workshop.

The machines are:

1. Hot-stamping machine, produced by "Josef Anger & Soehne", Vienna, Hernals. Josef Anger (1823-1882) was a famous inventor, born in Czech Republic, later moved to Vienna, Austria, after that - to USA - where he works for the famous Singer & Co, and finally - he returns to Vienna where his sons joned the company and from that moment the company name becomes "Josef Anger & Soehne".
2. Punch-press, produced in Germany, operated by Siemens electric motor (produced by Siemens-Schukertwerke - the very first name of Siemens).
3. 1300 mm bookbinding german paper-knife.

I have tried to upload some photos here, but they are too havy-sized for this form.

In case of interest, please contact me at violin61@yahoo.com.

With kind regards,

Violin Tomov
