Letterpress

Some paper manipulation can be very overt, while other kinds can be light and subtle. Letterpress techniques leave behind a beautiful inked surface and a bit of relief, and the overall look is very much that of a craft. The Letterpress Delicacies shop, based in Austin, Texas, has some beautiful, detailed pieces. Letterpress techniques show off more than just the ink and the design; the prints also help show the paper off. The textures and quality of the paper printed on is really visible when a handicraft like letterpress is applied. The nature of the ink medium should be matched in quality with its canvas.
