I recently spent several months working with the family run Typoretum, a letterpress workshop based in the sleepy village of Coggeshall, Essex, UK. Essentially a working museum, Justin Knopp has built Typoretum by collecting and acquiring letterpress equipment over a period of more than 20 years. This is an incredible place to learn and make work.
I worked with the brilliant Áine O'Meara / Enda O'Dowd / Yellow Brick Media to produce this video as a thank you to Typoretum for all the access to such an amazing array of type, equipment and expertise. Áine flew over and filmed tirelessly on location over a cold and busy January weekend.
Special thanks to the whole Typoretum team: Justin, Cecilia, Rob, Freya and Jemima.
