I love letterpress. But to be honest who doesn’t. This is a short film about letterpress and one of the few remaining movable-type printing workshops in the UK, situated at Plymouth University, featuring Paul Collier.

We went to do a bit of letterpress with Steven at A Two Pipe Problem the other week. The resulting poster (above) is a combination of a couple of rounds of Exquisite Corpse. Designed on press and set in various woodblock typefaces, we printed on Steven’s 1930s Stephenson Blake proofing press.

A Two Pipe Problem does a variety of commissions. You can also buy some of Steven’s own work in his shop and at the Design Museum, London.

I love this letter press invite card. Firstly I didn’t realise you could do so many different colours and depths with the process and secondly it reminds me of old Real Ale badges.

Its was created by the chaps at Studio on Fire.
