The Beauty of Letterpress, 11th Edition

"Old School Meets New School" Letterpress Print | Designed by Von Glitschka and Printed by Genghis Kern

As a longtime fan of Von Glitschka’s work, I’m excited to see that he, along with Denver-based letterpress printer Genghis Kern, has collaborated with Neenah Paper for Edition 11 of The Beauty of Letterpress series. His print, “Old School Meets New School”, brings together two contrasting creative methods to complement each other. “Old School” represents letterpress, while “New School” refers to working with digital methods.

As Glitschka says, “This creative yin-yang balances the old and new methods — digital allows us to create things with greater ease, while analog printing like letterpress allows us to reproduce it with the aesthetic that only antiquated methods can produce.”

This fun and funky letterpress print is available for just $5, and all proceeds from the purchase price help support The Hamilton Wood Type and Printing Museum, the only museum dedicated to the preservation, study, production, and printing of wood type.

Here are some photos of the creative process behind this very cool project:
