Upside Down, Left To Right: A Letterpress Film

Upside Down, Left To Right: A Letterpress Film

Danny Cooke has a series of documentaries he’s been working on, and this one about letterpress is my personal favorite. It’s a short film featuring one of the few remaining movable-type printing workshops in the UK, situated at Plymouth University. It features printer Paul Collier as he goes through the motions (but not in a bad way!) of printing out some rather beautiful pieces. Be sure to watch till the end for the credits, which are all letterpressed.
