In an age where digital production is the most favoured for its ease of modification and speed of realisation we forget how it was produced back in the old days. We also lose out on the amazing textures created by the old methods of printing in particular wood prints and letterpress technology. If you've never explored or even owned anything letter pressed then I can whole heartedly recommend you go source some and just feel the workmanship that goes into producing such work. In the meantime check out this trailer for Typeface a film all about the age old process and the struggle to keep a production facility-cum-museum alive before the knowledge is lost to the digital age.
