Slab American

The Grit History Series is based on woodtype and letterpress samples found in letterpress shops in the midwest. While many parts of the United States are virtually devoid of letterpress, print shops in the midwest continue to utilize this printing technique when appropriate.

Grit History is a response to the demand for less-than-perfect letterforms depicting a style predating offset printing and digital type.
