It's fun to watch letterpress videos even if it's a 30 second clip of a windmill press in action. This one is gold. I'm a h u g e fan of Studio on Fire, a letterpress + design workspace in Minneapolis. This video of owner Ben Levitz sums down the entire process of letterpress printing to a tee. He walks you through the platemaking procedures, the printing process (the fun stuff) and even peeves. Spare a few more moments to delve into this esteemed studio.
It's up and posted!
I can't tell you enough how excited I am about this feature!
Emma approached me about a Lovely Lady spot shortly after I printed our first project together. (Check out her business cards here) Soon after, it turned into a studio tour complete with all the construction mayhem. My initial reaction: "A video? At my place? But there are people hammering and making all kinds of noise upstairs." Somehow, the story folded in all together- the house, my dog , the press and my story.
Wade Koch pulled out all the stops with his camera and endured hours of editing to get this just right. His eye and his storytelling through a lens is amazing.
Thank you Emma Robertson for making this happen!! And all this time you were just down the same street!
