lovely letterpress

April 11, 2011

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

Bummer, it looks like it is already sold out. Be sure to check out the WNYBAC blog to read more about Why We Lose Our Hands.
