Project Plug: #typesettingsg by Sun Yao Yu

The #typesettingsg project by Sun Yoa Yu is totally worth making a fuss about. Letterpress typesetting is a slow, most intricate process and the pieces of print  produced using this tactile technique are simply beautiful.

“It is basically a personal project to promote this traditional printing method using handset types. The handset typesetting era started in the 15th century and ended in the 70s, replaced with modern ways of printing. Although there has been a revival of letterpress, studios often use photo-polymer plates. The handset type printing method has been long forgotten. #typesettingsg also serves as the # for twitter and instagram to encourage more interaction with the public.” – Yao Yu.

This man deserves some serious respect!
