. deutsches museum, munich from t-mizo
I’m fanta-planning about a trip to munich, and i knew the deutsches museum is famous for having all sorts of cool stuff. I just didn’t think it would have my idea of cool stuff..and wrote it off my to-visit list,
until i saw that. But of course! Any self-professed lover of print must know gutenberg.
A long while back, i played with lithography, before fantasising about engraving, and then marveling over letterpress. The regularity of the print belies the textural sensuousness; the moment taken to embed the pattern comes at the end of a long, almost meditative craftsmanship. I love it,
seeing a well-hewn hefty type reminds me of that love with an emphatic letterpress-like thud.
