August 2017 Featured Artist - Type High Letterpress
August 2017 brings us another talented artist to the Featured Artist Program: Tony Zanni of Type High Letterpress!
From the Home Page of Type High Letterpress:
"Type High was founded in 2005 by Tony Zanni. In 2008 Type High merged with Dock 2 Letterpress and together they purchased the "Bretz" collection (a huge collection of letterpress type). In the fall of 2013 Tony relocated the collection to the Hungerford Building in Rochester, NY and revived Type High Letterpress.
To say there are a few characters in this type shop is an understatement. With over 650 cases of type in the shop from the likes of Bodoni, to Tiffany Script, we have you covered. Some of our type is over 100 years old, it’s not perfect and that’s what will make your job look perfect.
We are craftsmen, and mechanics.
We lovingly restored each press. We know their noises, and their issues,
so, no matter what, we'll make sure our Vandercook Proof Press, Wesel Iron Hand Press, or C&P Platen Press, will give your job the bite you're looking for."
Be sure to check out Tony's window display all month long at Little Button Craft, and meet the artist behind this fantastic work on August 17th from 5-8pm!
