Event description
Pablo Pivetta and Nicolas Rodriguez Fuchs document the changes facing letterpress printing in Endless Letterpress

About this Event

Design Museum of Chicago and the Society of Typographic Arts presents a screening of Endless Letterpress, a documentary film by Pablo Pivetta and Nicolas Rodriguez Fuchs. Following the film, there will be a Q&A with the two directors and posters for sale. 

About the Film

Facing the deterioration of the machines and the advance of new technologies, the printing presses are closing their workshops. At the same time, a group of young people rediscovers the greatest technical innovation in the history of the written word: the typesetting printing. But it will be difficult for them to learn the trade since it has always been passed down from master to apprentice — and they are outsiders. The last graphic mechanic of the country will be in charge of teaching them so that this ancient technique can withstand the passage of time.
