Sab letterpress

sab-letterpress.jpgIn a quick-moving society, there’s a desire to hold onto things that are nostalgic, one that isn’t mass produced often involving traditional craftsmanship. Everytime I see images of letterpress and typography, I fall in love. There is indescribable beauty in the type blocks, printing mechanisms and quality designs. I love the images on this site, let the pictures speak for themselves.

    this concept of holding “onto things that are nostalgic, that isn’t mass produced” is the same concept behind serrote, which you probably know.
