Letterpress News Paper Tiger Press

digitizing analog life

October 20, 2010

Now that I’m done moonlighting as a party planner, it’s time to head back to the studio for some real work.

But first, an annoucement: Paper Tiger Press is now on Facebook! I’m also working on the whole Twitter thing, though it really seems like the antithesis of what I do – wouldn’t it be nice if I could just mail everyone little handwritten tweets on letterpress stationery?

I think so.

On a related note, I’m loving this series of photos by Phillip Maisel, who took long-exposure photos of a computer screen while scrolling through facebook photo albums.

I actually found these photos more alluring before I read the artist’s mission statement, which came across as an over-dramatized afterthought to an exceptional idea. Of course now that I’ve said that, I’m sure you’re dying to go and see what I mean. Seriously though, just try to not roll your eyes at that last question.
