For the love of letterpress

Monday, February 9, 2009

Brian Allen is a talented typographer and printing craftsman. He runs a small letterpress printing shop named Officina Briani in Raleigh, North Carolina. We worked with Brian years ago at Monotype and have always admired his letterpress work. We just learned that the Today Show recently filmed some footage of his Albion hand press as part of a story that should appear the morning of February 13th. Congratulations Brian!
