  • As designers move further and further into a digitised world, an important piece of New Zealand design history and knowledge is slowly disappearing. Through the combination of traditional letterpress and digital techniques this project aims to reflect the eclectic collection and historical importance of New Zealand’s printing history, and at the same time, paying homage to the men and women from The Printing Museum who remain dedicated to the preservation of such an important piece of New Zealand history.
