Old Style printing!
In Two River Wisconsin there is a wood type museum filled with boxes of wood cut letters. The economy has crashed the revenue for this company and the interest in strict clean lines from computer prints made this museum slowly dwindle in the economy. The feeling for classic type with the old feel is now coming back and the interest in the random scattered flaws that come with come with printing with wood type and on a letter press machine is starting to be recognized as glorious flaws. Perfection of this society has set the letter press community to the side but if each person in the graphics industry starts to appreciate the art of beauty and not perfect pieces of art the impact of the society will not impact the graphical world.
