The Beauty of Letterpress and Engraving

And now, two series that have been making us drool for quite a while: Neenah’s The Beauty of Engraving, and The Beauty of Letterpress, featuring commissioned work from Jessica Hische, Marian Bantjes, Design Army, Tad Carpenter, Armin Vit, and many others. It’s a print wonderland—and has benefited a great cause.

As background, here’s what Neenah had to say:

The Beauty of Engraving and The Beauty of Letterpress were conceived as companion sites to showcase the tantalizing possibilities of specialty printing by featuring the work of the designers and craftspeople who continue to reinvent how these print methods are used in modern communication.
 When we launched the Beauty of Letterpress, we couldn’t help but want to support the Hamilton Wood Type and Printing Museum. We also create and produce limited edition prints. The sale of these limited edition prints raised more than $15,000 (a lot of prints) and we matched that donation to help save Hamilton.”
