The idea behind the Letterpress Workers project, the now customary international meeting of typographical designers held every year in Milan, is that graphic design should play an active role within society and thus also speak of the drives that run through it. In the 2016 edition, the concept of fear was addressed.

The book, through a choral visual narrative, brings together the works resulting from this association and explores its socio-cultural implications, starting with the graphic design, freely inspired by the work of Dutch designer Willem Sandberg, whose human and professional example embodied the very spirit of this edition of the conference.

    In addition to the regular (book-only) edition, we present this deluxe edition, which includes a portfolio of 25 original letterpress prints. These compositions were individually printed in response to the new common theme of ‘hope’, which followed the 2016 theme of ‘fear’ in 2017. Each year, the participants carry out their chosen theme in two stages: during the group art residency and, later, with each person’s individual work in their own studio. Opposite/complementary themes are chosen to create tension and find balance. The deluxe edition of the Letterpress Workers volume shows these two moments together.
