Review Print Shop thrived for many years in Downtown Rock Island, Illinois, before entering a period of dormancy from 2010-2013.  These images were captured during that dormant period, when the shop had ceased to function.  The new owner, Joshua Rose, asked Joshua Ford to document and preserve the shop's final days before being dismantled.  The original presses, tools and typeset were removed to make way for a new community art space on the first floor, and recording studio on the second floor.   Photography by Joshua Ford
