Newly revised and updated with luscious and inspiring images of contemporary work, this book allows today's graphic designer to rediscover the creative potential of letterpress. Thanks to its physical presence on the page, letterpress has a unique and visual impact, and offers a powerful means of expressing ideas through a more intelligent use of type. Despite the dominance of computer typesetting and printing in trade publishing, private letterpress publishers are on the increase. This timely book celebrates the diversity of the original work being produced by graphic designers and typographers using letterpress around the world. It examines US and European private presses, top international graphic designers working with letterpress, the use of letterpress as a commercial medium in developing countries, and new developments in technology. A celebration of the handmade design aesthetic currently enjoying a period of revival, Letterpress is an indispensable reference for both professional and amateur creatives, and all letterpress enthusiasts.   show more
