Letterpressed at the London Centre for Book Arts.
Yesterday I attended a one day conference on letterpress – once a thing of the past but now very clearly the focus of renewed enthusiasm. Debates arose around the handmade qualities of the medium, yet produced using a machine; metal fever; how to move letterpress forward by combining it with new technologies; everything old is new again; and looking backwards to think forwards.

The St Bride Foundation have also launched a series of courses in letterpress beginning this November. See you there!
