This Midwest-produced documentary traces the history, technique, and importance of letterpress, while also focusing on the passionate (and often colorful) printers who are preserving, using, and educating about this now-antiquated technology. The film features segments at IU’s Lilly Library and School of Art, Architecture + Design, one of the few university programs to teach the medium.
