I’m feeling a need to return to craft and make something with simple tools and my hands. Maybe
it’s the overdose of screen time we all have going these days, but looking at a piece of design
or type, set using the letterpress is something quite different and unique. I stumbled upon this vocational film from the 50’s to help make you feel nostalgic about these antiquated processes.

If you’re impatient or are completely resistant to the romance of the way things were, check out
this more recent, shorter video. It’s beautiful!
