Kartemquin executive director Justine Nagan's 2009 film has won fans around the world for its endearing portrayal of the Hamilton Wood Type Museum in Two Rivers, WI, and its wider investigation of the persistence and popularity of analog craft traditions in the digital age. It was also named best documentary at the 2009 Flyway Film Festival. It's a must for letterpress, printing, typography and design fans, so spread the word!
We're delighted that the Guardian newspaper selected Typeface as one of today's viewing highlights, asking "Does the print industry's future lie in its past?"
With a noted tradition of nurturing emerging talent and acting as a leading voice for independent media, Kartemquin is building on more than 50 years of history as Chicago’s documentary powerhouse.
