Pressed! Letterpress Workshop at Two Paper Dolls in 35mm
This set of photos were taken at the Two Paper Dolls letterpress and design house in Wayne, PA during a Design Philadelphia event back in October. Shot with a Minolta x-700, the photos come from the first roll of Kodak Portra 400 film I had shared some photos from a little while ago.
The day consisted of a tour of the Two Paper Dolls facilities (their space is quite lovely), an overview and demonstration of how their presses worked by their pressmen and finally, the group got to create an awesome letterpress calendar on a Vandercook press. I’m not a designer by profession, but definitely have an appreciation for great print design, so it was fun to be surrounded by all sorts of wooden type blocks and get an inside look at how these guys produce some beautiful work.
