David Jury
3.9/5 (13 ratings)
Contemporary graphic designers, particularly those who have grown up with the computer, are re-discovering the creative potential of letterpress as a medium.

This timely book celebrates the diversity of the original work being produced by graphic designers and typographers using letterpress around the world.

The book 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 letterpress technology.
