Kickstarter user and graphic designer John Bonadies is developing an application that will revive the letterpress on your iPad . The application will allow you to create letterpress designs digitally using a collection of historically accurate wood typefaces and cuts. “Letterpress has had a growing interest over the past decade amongst designers, artists, and printmakers. Call it a reaction to the “perfect” look of laser-printing,” said John Bonadies on the project’s Kickstarter page. “But unfortunately, much of the letterpress’s traditional technology was sold for scrap metal and replaced with computers over the last 30 years. Wood type was burned, thrown in a landfill, or divided up as knick-knacks in antique and craft shops.
