Letterpress printing exhibition

Letterpress is a form of relief printing. This traditional craft, which has almost exclusively been replaced by digital technology, is showcased in an exhibition by the Christchurch Art Gallery at Central Library Peterborough.

The exhibition 'Press Letters – Fine Printing in New Zealand since 1975' includes the finest examples of letterpress printing produced in New Zealand in the last 37 years. The exhibition runs from 30 August to Sunday 23 September and is timed to coincide with The Press Writers’ Festival.

Find out more about the exhibition.

  1. I'd suggest that letterpress had already been 'almost exclusively' replaced by offset litho printing.
