"The conventions by which typographers are still bound were, to an enormous degree, formed by the primal technology of letterpress and it is inconceivable that typography will stray far from what letterpress has made it. This, and other primal printing developments provide the theme of this multi-award-winning issue of TypoGraphic." (Source) www.istd.org.uk
