Typoretum: A Letterpress Workshop

Typoretum: A Letterpress Workshop from Jamie Murphy on Vimeo.

Justin Knopp runs a small design and letterpress operation called Typoretum in Essex, England. I have been following Justin and his excellent work for sometime and this wonderfully shot video shows his operation in action. Keeping the craft of printing alive by adding the passion for letterforms and design is what Justin does so well and makes it all look so easy. Enjoy this video to show you how a craftsman creates work that inspires and sparks a love for all things type.

Justin host workshop on the art of printing and letterpress at his studio if you are in the area. To learn more and to view more of Justin's work, visit his site Typoretum.
