AIGA SA Presents: Pressing On – The Letterpress Film

The modern world was born on a printing press. Once essential to communication, the 500-year-old process is now in danger of being lost as its caretakers age. From self-proclaimed basement hoarders to the famed Hatch Show Print, Pressing On: The Letterpress Film explores the question: why has letterpress survived?

Join us for a documentary that beautifully captures the art and technology of letterpress printing and preserves important voices in this craft for generations to come. Young printers strive to save this historic process in a film created for the designer, type nerd, historian and collector in us all.
