Vista Sans Wood Type Project just released a new experimental Letterpress printing book and I must say, it is quite beautiful (just to clarify, this book is not letterpressed, rather it is on the topic of letterpress printing). Touch is a limited edition, hand bound document capturing the process and final product of 20 different printermakers' using a wood type version of Vista Sans (specifically cut for this project). This is a round up of some of the most notable letterpress printers in the US including Matter's Rick Griffith, Studio On Fire, Nick Sherman, David Shields (caretaker of the Rob Roy Kelly American Wood Type Collection) and more. Although all projects included are letterpress, the printing processes in this book show a wide range of experimentation including not only people combining the new type with older sets and custom made plates, but also cutting wood type in smaller pieces, printing end grains and more. Pick it up while you still can! Or grab it at the Typecon bookstore this weekend (Aug 21-25, 2013).
