Letterpress bite, deep impression and detail

The beauty of modern letterpress is the deep impression, or “bite” we’re getting when we punch the form into the paper. Back in the day, when I apprenticed to become a typesetter (ca. 1987), the tradesmen would commit suicide if they’d see anything other than a kiss impression, where the ink touches the paper without leaving a visible impression. Today we are using the letterpress punch for beautiful texture and tactile feedback, with or without ink.
