From the article: ‘A small, dark-haired, steady-handed man named Augusto Lovato, who speaks more Spanish than English, hunched over a drawing board in a quieter room off the main floor, a dusty lamp nearby. Peering though an old magnifying glass at a copper plate, he expertly cleaned the serifs and curls.

“This is a real economy,” Mr. Donnelly said of the printing business. “This is not that bogus economy of Wall Street.’ This country used to manufacture things.”‘
