This work of art uses old style letters from a printing press. Part of a series called Typography Photography by Holli Conger. Excellent one.


  1. Just imagine - some time ago people had to put thousands of such letters one by one, creating a book to print then...

    1. I used to know someone who worked as a typesetter on a newspaper. The hardest part of the job was learning to work right to left and put the letters in backwards.


Welcome. I love it when visitors comment - even if it's only to say "Hi, I've been here!"
