But really, everything they do is lovely. After Jack sent me the gilded shot above, I perused their flickr stream and found ombre posters, wood block illustrations, Day of the Dead plates constructed from bits of type, and eventually, on the Typoretum blog, a mesmerizing video about the shop.

I can’t get enough of these guys. We have a weakness of making-of videos, and for watching presses in motion – we stop by Jack’s dad’s shop every chance we get – so that, in part, might explain my partiality.
