LetterMpress – the virtual letterpress app for the iPad – is now available on the iPad App Store. Here’s the opening section of its App Store description:
LetterMpress is a creative environment that lets you design beautiful compositions with vintage wood type and art cuts on a virtual hand-driven printing press.
LetterMpress gives you the experience of producing your designs on a letterpress — placing and arranging type on the press bed, inking, and then turning the hand crank to make a print.
Every step in the printing process is replicated on the iPad, to give you an authentic, interactive experience.
The app lets you design using authentic wood type and ‘vintage art cuts’, and create items including fine art style posters, signage, and lots more. This started off as a Kickstarter project and now it’s good to see it up and running.
Here’s an App Store link for LetterMpress; it’s priced at $5.99.
