Letterpress Videos: New North Press & Mr Smith’s Letterpress Workshop

by Denis on November 21, 2011

We admit to being suckers for letterpress videos. The videos above feature two U.K. letterpress shops, New North Press and Mr Smith’s Letterpress Workshop, which collaborated along with several other letterpress outfits on the Reverting To Type exhibition, curated by New North Press and designer Richard Ardagh, and which took place at the Standpoint Gallery in London about one year ago (as you can tell, ‘Breaking News’ is not our forte).

In conjunction with the exhibition, ten leading artists, poets and designers (Phil Baines, Vikram Seth, Fraser Muggeridge Studio, David Pearson, Catherin Dixon, Gabriel Gbadamosi, Stevey Scullion, Beatrice Bless, OPX Design and Peter Ashton-Jones) were invited to produce prints inspired by the title. These prints were hand set by them and printed in short runs which are available together as a bound portfolio or individually. Of utmost beauty!
