The Collection is a short documentary about two friends, DJ Ginsberg and Marilyn Wagner, and their discovery of an astonishing and unique collection of movie memorabilia, comprised of over 40,000 printer blocks and 20,000 printer plates used to create the original newspaper advertisements for virtually every movie released in the United States from the silent period through 1984, when newspapers stopped using the letterpress format.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 I can only love that kind of story! I love hunting vintage items and I always hope something like this will happen! It is Keith Tatum who brings me to this film, and his Instagram « The type hunter » is an amazing source of vintage packaging and design. I was so pleased to have him designing the « Trust the unexpected - Everything could happen » sentence for this year letterpress calendar! Keith just set up a new website as he was to bring his passion for vintage design to a next level!
Talking about vintage items, I also met on Instagram Mark E Sackett, who is a crazy collector too and is going to open an ephemera museum in San Fransisco called The Box SF! And Mark is coming to France next month an I will show you around some places to found vintage items!

Thanks to all who already get their 2017 letterpress calendar over the Kickstarter campaign, more than 40% in 5 days, this is so great!
 
When Sam Hayles of DOSEprod shows me his pictures of his weekend visit in the Robert Smail's Printing Workshop, I want to share them right away ! With the studio and projects, I really have no time to visit creatives and workshop and I miss it ! I am pretty sure I smell the paper and ink when watching at these pictures...
