The Printer's Devil

4) The Printer's Devil

While wandering about Stonegate, you will notice sculptures attached to many buildings. At 33 Stonegate you will find one of a fiery devil. A printer's devil refers to the printer’s apprentice. The history of this comes from the black ink stains that covered the apprentice. This vocation became known as a “black art” and the apprentice became known as the “devil.” The lever which printers used in their trade was also called the printer's devil, because it often snapped back. One day, a worker at this print shop carved a devil on the shop's exterior, and though the shop no longer exists, the sculpture remains and the Printer’s Devil is a popular attraction.
