TypeFace: The Movie

Chicago film studio Kartemcquin is working on a new documentary film called TypeFace about the Hamilton Wood Type Museum in Two Rivers, Wisconsin. The Hamilton Printing Factory, once a bustling center for printing and wood type, now hosts monthly woodtype letterpress printing workshops that bring artisans and designers from across the midwest. The film and its creators hope to show the convergent place between historical type and printing, rural American life and our contemporary, digital-driven world (I'm paraphrasing a bit here, please read their full About the Film section for a more poetic description.) I want to see this film!!!
