Old-school ways of printing, like screen printing, are currently re-experiencing another revival with artists, using those very technical and manually adjustable proceedings to create limited print editions with a rough and sometimes vintage style…
Regarding Paul Collier, another of these revival experiencing printing techniques is letterpress printing. When I stumbled upon the nice and intimate Upside Down, Left to Right letterpress film by Danny Cooke, I immediately felt like a small kid watching his grand-dad working! I’m a big letterpress fan, mainly because of that certain feeling you have by stroking the printed surface and the knowledge of how difficult creating good letterpress prints can be, for what reason I really loved this short film.
Make sure to check it out and probably you’ll soon be part of the letterpress revival by going to print your next flyer, invitation or whatsoever in the next letterpress printing studio!
