The modern world was born on a printing press. Once essential to communication, the 500-year-old process is now in danger of being lost as its caretakers’ age. From self-proclaimed basement hoarders to the famed Hatch Show Print, “Pressing On” explores the question: why has letterpress survived in a digital age? This film examines the people and world of this beautiful medium.
