Letterpress: An Instructional Video

When we feel like we’re spending far too much time in front of a keyboard and monitor we like to remind ourselves of the simple pleasures of inky fingers, paint covered sleeves and chemical smells that are seemingly less and less commonplace as our worlds become more digitized. We have huge admiration for artists who dedicate time and energy towards keeping old techniques and processes alive so when we came across this video we just had to share. For those of you who are unfamiliar with how letterpress printing works, this video by designer Naomie Ross, is a beautifully filmed introduction which perfectly captures why this printing technique still has a dedicated and passionate following.
