CARTAEMATITA and Officina Tipografica Novepunti are pleased to present "LETTERPRESS. The beginning of design"

A workshop dedicated to the letterpress printing tecnique which consists in the juxtaposition of types covered with ink and printed on paper.

Nowadays the product design is going back to craftsmanship and to the oneoff object. In this context letterpress is experiencing a period of great revival as it preserves the technical and artistic uniqueness of every single product. Research of materials or papers, the choice of colors and the overlapping of elements allow an high level of experimentation that combines tradition and conteporary aesthetics.

Every attendee will customize and bring home a postcard, experiencing at first hand the potential of typography. During the event will be also exibited many tools as ancient wood types, clichè and some posters realized with the letterpress printing technique.
