lovely letterpress

One of my goals this year is to learn to letterpress. I haven’t had a chance to take a class yet and I’m getting pretty antsy. This book, Why We Lose Our Hands by Chris Fritton, is not helping. I want to learn! I want to learn! Seriously, I LOVE the look of letterpress. Lovely.

“The book is a study in contrast: it is printed entirely in black and white; it uses the most antiquated analog technology (letterpress) to articulate the most recent digital technology (2-D codes); and it requires an electronic device to decode, even though it masquerades as a technologically-independent object. And it is, in many ways, but that doesn’t mean you’ll be able to “read” it.” –WNYBAC blog
