Letterpress App for iPad

We’ve been keeping an eye on this particular iPad app for the past several weeks, & today it is one step closer to it’s release date.

This virtual letterpress app hasn’t been a half-effort. The good people over at LetterMPress have been searching out complete sets of original wood typefaces for quite some time now in order to bring you a digital version of authentic-looking letterpress designs & type. This process has been aided largely in part by donations given to fund their project. In just a few short hours, donations will be closed & their letterpress project fully funded.

Over the years, its become increasingly difficult to find full sets of original letterpress type. Many have been discarded, divided up in antique shops or even burned with the age of computers, making this app, & other recent efforts like it applauded & highly anticipated by a growing number of designers & letterpress enthusiasts.

The video below explains the process behind creating this app.
