Our First Interview 第一次的訪問!

Apple Daily Hong Kong interviewed us last week!
They will write an article about the revival of letterpress in Hong Kong!

Letterpress printing was a sunset industry in Hong Kong.
Fewer and fewer newcomers are joining the industry to preserve this precious technique.  Ditto Ditto is proud to be part of the mission to bring letterpress back to Hong Kong and to revitalize it with modern design.

Stay tuned and check out:

The Los Angeles International Printing Museum

The International Printing Museum is located in Carson California, just a short drive away the city of Los Angeles.  It has one of the largest collections of antique printing press in the United States.  The museum works very hard to maintain and  preserve the history of printing.  They also provide educational programs for schools and public!

During the summer of 2012, we went to the museum and took a 1 day private session at the printing museum!  It was a really fun day and we learned a lot on the history of printing, all types of printing machines and has a great learning session for using the Heidelberg Windmill!

We started the day learning all the basics and history of prinitng, out of the hundreds of machine, the Linotype machine had amazed me the most, it revolutionized typesetting and and it was a kick starter for the popularity of newspaper publishing!

 
Different type of fonts and size. Amazingly well organized.

These are called the furniture
These letterpress quoins are very useful

And we spend the rest of the day learning about the Heidelberg Windmill with Josh!

We had a great time at the International Printing Museum, Los Angeles.
Thanks Gary for teaching us the skills and tips on printing,  it was a great experience for all of us!  We cant wait to be able to go
