Those beautiful broadsides and printed cards you find in your favorite bookshops? They’re probably done on a letterpress. Here’s a video from Dan Peters at the Blue Begonia Press showing a letterpress at work in all its old-fashioned glory. (And if you want more about letterpress, revisit this oldie but goodie essay from Mark Holtzen.)
Special thanks to Inklings owner, Susan Richmond, for sharing this with nwbooklovers.
