Yes, there has definitely been an increased interest in letterpress printing and rise of craft/artisanal work in general. So much of our social life, personal interactions, and work occurs online and on screen, so I’m guessing that the cultural transformation toward our iDevices and laptops has really helped fuel interest in handiwork, craftwork, and generally DIY art. For one, the ability to be able to communicate quickly with so many people and the access to online information has fostered both the proliferation and preservation of many craft traditions. Also, I feel that folks just need a break and find it satisfying to step away form their digital lives to look for more physical forms of expression.
