Typeface, a documentary from Kartemquin Films, is making the festival circuit. A struggling rural Wisconsin printing factory-turned-museum, The Hamilton Wood Type Museum, opens its doors once a month to artisans from across the Midwest, who arrive for workshops in the nearly lost art of letter press. The website for the project is appropriately type-stylish!
Limited-edition letterpress prints are for sale to support the film, including this one by Boston-based designer and musician, Nick Sherman.
