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.

They’ve produced a great little documentary telling our story, which posted to the BBC News Magazine website today. 

Cheers guys!

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.

Cheers to Bud Rodecker and Will Miller for hauling their Type 1 classes out on a weekend to make this happen.

Meet photographer Menno Aden

I’ve fallen in love with Germany’s Menno Aden. I don't really know where to begin when it comes to narrowing down what to share … start with Room Portraits, Over Head and Panel Flats. Gorgeous stuff.

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.

Personal Space

I haven’t posted about a knock-out record in quite ahwile, but Chocolate Industries Personal Space has been tearin’ up my turntable all weekend. 

“If the independently-pressed record made the galaxy of recorded music that much larger, the burgeoning home studio became the black hole from which little escaped … This collection presents the unheard underground of the self-produced, often solo, electronic soul world of the ‘70s and early ‘80s, offering a view into an ocean of sound that is in turn peaceful, bizarre, funky, and often humbly ahead of its time.”

Ridiculously good.
