Letterpress is making a comeback as an art form. Letterpress printing and finishing are seen as ways to enhance a printed product and create a tactile effect. Letterpress is usually used for smaller print runs to underline the exclusivity of the prints made by the letterpress process. Material requirements for letterpress print jobs are a part of this course, as well as how the choice of font is depending on the fonts available in the font class. Students will create hand-set letterpress pieces in this course.
