New iOS game hotness: Letterpress

posted by Jason Kottke   Oct 25, 2012

I only downloaded Letterpress about 10 minutes ago but I am already hopelessly hooked. The game is a combination of Boggle and Go and was made by Loren Brichter, who made Tweetie back in the day. This is the sort of app that makes me weep because it’s so simple and polished yet endless. Brichter is some sort of iOS wizard and we should have him burned at the stake for his wonderfully addictive magic.

A clever pair of designers are using Lego bricks to make 8-bit letterpress prints. Like so:

Prints are available.

Letterpress business cards on strange paper

posted by Jason Kottke   Oct 31, 2008

The Virgil O. Stamps Letterpress Laboratory prints business cards on all sorts of papers and surfaces, including children’s coloring book pages, duct tape, old National Geographic pages, antique book pages, and any sort of cardboard scraps. Pretty cool.

Nice little video about letterpress printing.
