Adventures in Letterpress

Adventures in Letterpress Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tactile, retro, and idiosyncratic, hand-printed objects have an undeniable appeal, especially in a digital age. In recent years, the nearly obsolete craft of letterpress has been resurrected by artists and designers who have rescued cast-iron presses from basements and scrap yards. Adventures in Letterpress features over 200 examples of the resulting work: elegant cards, edgy broadsheets, and everything in between. Beautiful, humorous and sometimes just plain weird, the projects featured in the book perfectly illustrate the vibrant future of this once-endangered medium.

About the Author

Brandon Mise has been doing letterpress printing since 2000. He is the owner and operator of Blue Barnhouse, a letterpress greeting card company in Wilmington, North Carolina.
