Description

The artists and printers featured in Letterpress Adventures shun standard mass-produced fare, favoring the beauty and physicality of doing things the old fashioned way. Framed by interviews of the people keeping the letterpress tradition alive, the book's photographs feature the delicate details and exciting and edgy designs that make clear why there is a renewed interest in letterpress posters, cards, and packaging.




About the Author

Brandon Mise, proprietor of Blue Barnhouse letterpress studio, started his affair with the tactile medium at the San Francisco Center for the Book before moving his company to North Carolina. For as much as the studio has grown since then, with its cards being stocked in retail outlets as varied as Urban Outfitters and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Mise and his cohorts have maintained and facilitated a community of like-minded letterpress aficionados, all of whom are at the forefront of contemporary letterpress.
