If, like me, Typeface the film bummed you out with its depressing outlook for woodtype and letterpress, then Pressing On provides the antidote.
The feature length documentary examines the relevance of a physical process that is anything but modern and asks ‘Why has letterpress printing survived?’. The cast is a who’s who of US letterpress printers and introduces the comedy pairing of the two Daves, who help right the world of printing wrongs.
The film is half way to its Kickstarter goal; please support their fundraising so they can go into full production this summer, which hopefully means we can all watch Pressing On at our local film festival next year. Yay!
