In July 2007, Peter Van Lancker, Erik Desmyter, Patrick Goossens, Gilbert Decorte and Jos Pastijn organized a spectacular event, called Fata Morgana, in which over 1000 newspapers were printed of The Bornhemsche Gazet of 1831, in letter types of the era (Monotype Modern Extended, specially founded by Gilbert Decorte for the event) on a Perreau&Brault stop cylinderpress, which, for the occasion, was restored by volunteers at the MIAT.
