Crossing the Atlantic
Producer Anna Bressanin and cameraman Ilya Shnitser of the BBC News swung by the studio a few weeks ago to find out what makes the Post Family tick.
The tricks of the trade
We’re all about sharing what we know with our extended family. The first weekend in November saw us take this idea to a new level as we hosted a letterpress blowout weekend-long workshop, showing students from Chicago Portfolio School what it means to get down-and-dirty and set some type by hand.
Student overachiever David Peña Blanco made a beautiful video documenting the day that we simply had to share.

Museum of Endangered Sounds
The Museum of Endangered Sounds was launched in January as a venue for the preservation of the fading technological soundscape of yesterday.
“…when the entire world has adopted devices with sleek, silent touch interfaces, where will we turn for the sound of fingers striking QWERTY keypads?”
Garish as hell but such a good idea—like Experimental Jetset’s Lost Formats Preservation Society on crack.
Such gorgeous work. If you’re in Chicago, check out Clarissa’s work in person at the Columbia College MFA show, opening tomorrow night.
