###endurance testing: Because the type was covered in ink and pushed down when printing, it was gradually flattened out. Being easy to process, it also changed easily under the weight of printing. However, being made of paper, these changes were inevitable. After printing using this type forty times, it was squashed, as in the picture on the right. Also, to bring the flattened papertype surface to the same height as the printing surface – although it required some precise adjustment – I had to place paper under the type and alter the height until it was tall enough.
