For Print Nerds: Graphics Atlas

2 November 2010 | 0 Comments

I will fully admit, I’m a print nerd.  In a lot of ways – I love paper, I love typography, I love letterpress… I even spent a lovely evening with Kinnon watching a documentary about printing processes.  And back in June, we did a letterpress workshop at a local indie print shop.

So I was easily able to waste some time exploring Graphics Atlas, a website that’s part online printing archive, part printing education lesson.  Do you know the distinguishing characteristics between relief and intaglio?  Or, more relevant to today’s designers – the difference between offset litho and direct thermal?  If you’re a print nerd or a designer, this is pretty essential knowledge.  Check out Graphics Atlas and learn something!
