View Website

For more than 120 years, the Forward has given an eager American Jewish audience a unique mix of news, culture and opinion. Published on the Lower East Side beginning in 1897, this Yiddish-language newspaper had a circulation of more than 275,000 in its heyday. Now a digital-only publication appearing in both English and Yiddish, the Forward maintains a vast archive tracing the history of the printed publication and the stories it covered. Pressed dives into this archive, presenting a selection of metal plates used to print images in the paper, along with contemporary prints made, using the historic plates, with traditional equipment at Bowne & Co., Stationers.
