Joshua Panter: Film of Hooksmith Press

Joshua Panter was in touch to let me know of his short film about Hook­smith Press in East Lon­don.

I thought it’d be of interest to your read­ers as it’s a thriv­ing let­ter­press  busi­ness, and the short cov­ers both the story of own­er Rus­sell Frost and his jour­ney from New Zeal­and to East Lon­don, along with an insight into the craft of let­ter­press and what it takes to cre­ate a print.

Thanks, Josh!

Design­er, Typo­grapher & Print­er, Richard Ard­agh of New North Press in Hox­ton has col­lab­or­ated with the pupils of Bigland School in Stepney to cre­ate these splen­did let­ter­press signs for Wilton’s Music Hall, telling tales of its col­our­ful his­tory. Prin­ted with wood blocks and metal type onto book cloth moun­ted on board in the nine­teenth cen­tury man­ner, they are more than enough reas­on – should you ever require it – for a return trip to Wilton’s.
