Typeface: The Movie

Kartemquin films is currently editing a documentary simply entitled "Typeface." It is a film about the history of Hamilton Wood Type - from it's beginnings, to when it became the leading manufacturer of wood type in America, to now, as a living museum and the applications of letterpress and wood type in the 21st century.

I have been lucky enough to visit the Hamilton in Two Rivers, Wisconsin and I have massively high hopes for this film!

Also, visit Hamilton's website as well as Nick Sherman's Flickr set of his residency in Two Rivers.
