IMPRESSIVE Printmaking, Letterpress and Graphic Design

We're excited to announce the release of IMPRESSIVE Printmaking, Letterpress and Graphic Design. Eight of our letterpress projects are featured in Gestalten Press's latest publication.

Inspired by the challenge of hands-on tweaks and unpredictable results as well as the tactile qualities of different inks, papers, and binding techniques, today’s creatives are rediscovering old-fashioned printing methods and crafts. Impressive is a topical exploration of the interplay between current trends in graphic design and traditional handiwork such as letterpress printing, hand-cut linotype, chiselled woodblocks, and embossing. In addition to a rich selection of invitations, business cards, stationery, posters, and other material printed by hand, it offers personal insights from designers who are using old-fashioned techniques to create cutting-edge work.

The book is set to release in North America in mid May. We can't wait to receive our copy.
