Summary
A new generation of graphic designers has discovered letterpress--a technology so old it's new! With its unique visual and tactile impact, it has reemerged as a potent print medium. Now revised and updated with new examples of contemporary work, Letterpress continues to be an essential text for all enthusiasts of this printing process. Displaying an eclectic range of typographic material, it celebrates the technical ingenuity, conventions and rebellions, art and craft of letterpress. Presented against the background of William Morris's seminal work and the unstructured methodologies of the avant-garde artists, the contemporary scope of letterpress is revealed through the work of graphic designers, book artists, illustrators, and the rich and varied private presses. Expand your knowledge of the craft of communication, break the rules to create effective design. Letterpress is a must. --From cover
