Upside Down, Left to Right

A lovely short film about a lost art form, movable-type letterpress. I think there is a trend currently where we are striving to preserve culture and tradition. you see it in youth culture where vintage and recycling and reuse is 'popular'. I think a global awareness that old in not necessarily outdated and that new is better, I think that this is a global awareness that is spreading.

" The digital world does removes us from the tactile work, the more hands on. i think there is a longing in our souls to get back to that"
