Documentary: The Art of Letterpress

"The Art of Letterpress" is a documentary that explores the work of master typesetter and printer Stan Lane, who has been working with the London book publisher for a quarter century, creating beautiful volumes like the Letterpress Shakespeare series. Lane discusses the beauty of the labor-intensive process.
"Stan Lane, a master Typesetter and Printer, talked to us about the process of printing our Letterpress Shakespeare series.

Lane has been setting type for The Folio Society for 25 years and is one of the few craftsmen still skilled in the fine art of letterpress printing. Although labour-intensive, letterpress has a depth and elegance that modern printing cannot replicate."
