27 Inspiring Letterpress Posters

by on 12th May 2009 with 7 Comments

There has been a rather sudden revival of letterpress artwork in the past few years. No matter how much technology advances or how fast our laser printers get, one can’t help but admire the texture and beauty of this medium.

This week, we want to show you some brilliant letterpress posters. Some of these are printed using handmade wooden reliefs, some using metal type, some even using photopolymer plates (the preferred medium for letterpress plates these days). Whichever medium is employed – all of them are most certainly breathtaking!

    These are great! It’s so refreshing to be reminded that graphic design still exists outside the realms of Photoshop and computer screens. Especially love the images where you can see the three-dimensionality of the printing.

    Great letterpress posters, I particularly like Cameron Moll’s LDS temple the 7th one from the top. Did you know he also created a new work titled “Colosseo”, you might want to add that to your list :)
