Conveying the authors' love of the letterpress process and product, this book presents the technical, historical, aesthetic and practical information necessary for both students and instructors. The 2nd edition of For the Love of Letterpress includes an updated gallery of contemporary images of letterpress printing, as well as a new chapter of letterpress assignments from the United States, United Kingdom and Europe. Both additions attest to the dynamic and continued relevance of the media. The authors show how contemporary digital processes have expanded the boundaries of traditional letterpress. By writing with passion and experience, they indicate why a 15th century printing technology based upon crafting with one's hands, still has appeal and value to 21st century artists and designers. Whether incorporated into an academic curriculum or used for self-study, For the Love of Letterpress is a must for students who wish to learn letterpress and instructors seeking inspiration and reference.
