Hand & Eye Letterpress

On researching letterpress studios in London I came across this specialist, established in 1985 by Phil Abel and joined by Nick Gill. The printers only use letterpress machines and have an impressive catalogue of work.

The range of stationary, above, is for the copy writers TotalContent and designed by NB:Studio who were seeking a wood letter look. It’s printed with fluorescent orange and under inked to achieve the textured effect.

Hand & Eye also create zinc plates for printing (bottom), created by a photo-etching process from a digital file.
