Reinventing Gutenberg with modern computer technology. Letterpress type is getting harder to come by - can this be a way to recreate block and lead type by using digital matrices? This project started as a "proof of concept" at the Printmaking Department at Nyckelviksskolan this spring.
The first 3D printed types were demonstrated at a 3Dprintmaking party/workshop held 21 May with participants from the FFH (General Art, Crafts and Design) and BOG (Graphic Design and Illustration) classes.
Nyckelviksskolan (Stockholm Sweden) offers one-year programs in art, crafts and design together with a two-year professional training program for Specialist Craft Tutors. The school promotes artistic development with a focus on materials and techniques.
