Letter-press and type setting in El Salvador
Sadly google translate doesn’t work on video yet but I used it to get the following approximation of the description of this film. If any Spanish speakers can add anything to this after watching then please write in the comments or get in touch.
This is a short documentary, a byproduct of a study that was driven by the interest and because designers envision that office as the incipient steps of part of the design profession in our country. The first phase consisted of research to answer the research question: “How was the craft of typography?”.
Target was raised to make it through interviews with professionals who were in the office of typography between taking the investigation period (1950-1990).
With this material we reconstruct the past of the Salvadoran typography through the representation of information and typographical paraphernalia.
