Today on Obsessed Show we've got our first ever (I mean, I think it's the first-ever... once you're past 150 episodes, you have the right to forget stuff) - so I THINK it's the first-ever letterpress designer and printer, and his name is James Lewis Tucker.
You guys may not know this, but I got my start with very print-oriented design roles, and I've had the pleasure of producing a few letterpress projects, and it's just one of my favorite design touches.
Today we're gonna nerd out with James about all things letterpress, and why we might still be thinking about letterpress going into 2021.
Side note: I was (strangely) about to lose my voice during this recording, so apologies in advance for when my voice gets all wonky.
So without further ado, please enjoy this conversation with James Lewis Tucker.
