This past weekend I took a letterpress workshop through The Canadian Book Binders Association, and Massey College at UofT. Basically I spent two days setting metal type to do a 6 x 6 broad-sheet, and a decorative post card stamp.
It was awesome. It was like type tetris and lego for designers all crammed into one. Messy, physical, frustrating at times, and oddly enjoyable in that zen way that only sorting and kerning can give.
I’m hoping to try and do more. I’d like to do posters.
