Letterpress business cards

I wanted a business card taking advantage of classical printing techniques. In the end, what took the most time was finding the best provider for such services. I found them in the form of an ancient printing shop in Paris, where time had stopped — walls covered with old leaden alphabets, roaring machines displaying “art nouveau” decorations. A kind elderly man was still manning the printing apparatus, talking fondly of his many patrons – political men, ambassadors, people from the Parisian bourgeoisie, and so on.

But time passes by, and the old man’s shelves were to be dismantled mere weeks after my discovery. These are moments I will miss…
