not everyone’s type
I just wanted to share a great place I discovered this week; situated halfway between our appartment and my office, on the Singel near Dam Square.
letterpress amsterdam is a small type studio that produces all kinds of exotic bespoke printed matter. The friendly owner Thomas spent some time to show me around and explain what he does with his two wonderful old presses, metal typesetting and some funky old wooden type blocks. I am certainly going to be going back there very soon.
Oh yeah and pssst… try and keep it a secret otherwise everyone will want to go there too.
