Kickstarter user and graphic designer John Bonadies is developing an application that will revive the letterpress on your iPad.
The application will allow you to create letterpress designs digitally using a collection of historically accurate wood typefaces and cuts.
Bonadies is using Kickstarter, a service that bills itself as “a new way to fund & follow creativity”, to raise the funds needed to acquire a set of original letterpress typefaces from a collector. The minimum contribution is $1 and Bonadies is offering a range of benefits to supporters, including beta access to the application.
The original wood cuts aren’t only needed to ensure the historical veracity of the application. Bonadies intends to introduce a service where a user can have their LetterMpress designs turned into authentic letterpress prints.
