The tricks of the trade
We’re all about sharing what we know with our extended family. The first weekend in November saw us take this idea to a new level as we hosted a letterpress blowout weekend-long workshop, showing students from Chicago Portfolio School what it means to get down-and-dirty and set some type by hand.
Student overachiever David Peña Blanco made a beautiful video documenting the day that we simply had to share.
