Why letterpress isn’t a pursuit of perfection

Tagged with:

We sat down with graphic artist and printmaker, Anthony Burrill to discuss his love of letterpress and the romance behind a process that lends itself to imperfections.

Probably best well known for his ‘Work hard & be nice to people’ prints, it’s the process just as much as the end result which fuels Anthony’s passion. He explains that chips in hundred year old wood type, add to the character of his pieces, rather than detract.

Check out more of Anthony’s work here.
