An old-school printing method that dates back to the 15th century, letterpress has seen a widespread revival among artists, designers, and crafters of late. Rediscover its tactile charm with this trio of beautiful, informative books. In Brandon Mise’s Adventures in Letterpress, you’ll find the work of 80 presses from across the US—quirky, edgy designs that range from political ads to poetry broadsides to humorous ephemera. Meanwhile, Kseniya Thomas’s Ladies of Letterpress features the designs of the eponymous organization, which champions the work of women printers around the world. Accompanied by material, equipment, and printer details, the gallery of prints includes 86 removable posters. Finally, Alan Kitching: A Life in Letterpress documents the work of the renowned typographer and letterpress practitioner. It spans more than 50 years, from Kitching’s first typographical experiments to his prolific work for The Guardian and his time spent teaching at the Royal College of Art.
