Recently I saw the film From Up on Poppy Hill here. It takes place in the 60s in Japan, and the students in the movie publish their school gazette on what looks like a cyclostyle.

I'd really like to build something like this. Cyclostyles can be bought as antiques, but I imagine creating matrices that would work (perforated wax paper, written with a special pen) would be difficult. In the screen printing book I reviewed a few weeks ago, there's a section about the cyclostyle and other mimeograph machines. I've also discovered that there are facebook groups and forums for the mimeograph enthusiast. :)
