Semi-ironic reflection on the choice of using outdated and potentially dangerous printing techniques.
Archivio Tipografico is a letterpress printshop and specimen archive in Torino, Italy. Rick first met them on the Hamilton Hang, a virtual gathering of letterpress printers from around the world, in July of 2020. He went to their website, loved their work, and purchased the Pixelpress Printshop Poster and Sinfonia Meccanica Set (now sold out) for his own collection.
Davide and Debra began talking about their array of products and the logistics for getting them to our shop. Debra and Rick hand-selected some items and the AT team carefully packed and shipped them from Italy to share with you. We hope you love them as much as we do.
The Shop at MATTER is the only Archivio Tipografico stockist in the U.S. (and maybe in the world).
