Full process of making metal type #letterpress #Ikarus #typography
Documentary "Making Faces - Metal Type in the 21st Century" (2011) about the full process from marker calligraphy ⇀ pencil drawing ⇀ Ikarus software ⇀ cutting cardboard ⇀ pentograph 1 ⇀ pentograph 2 ⇀ typecasting ⇀ composing ⇀ printing
We do not escape from cliché photography and music but very detailled. The Ikarus part is quite rare. #P22
