We've just released our latest (Ok, months overdue!) edition of SlowPrint: the nEwsletter!
Please scoot on over to http://slowprint.com and click on the 'sign-up' link!
This issue discusses the production of some recent work, updates to the SlowPrint Studio toy box, and gives a short opinion on the web fonts discussion (well, not like you haven't heard enough about that ;-)

Slow Print Studio (nee Exquisite Letterpress) is a typographic letterpress shop, dedicated to the finest possible impression of the typographic letter. We're completely digital, but also hand-tune every PDF* for perfect letterpress reproduction, adding stroke weight to glyphs, adjusting spacing of mouse-type, etc. *(in consultation with the designer of course!)

Thanks for great designs, comments and ideas from Typophilistas!
Keep them coming!

Peter

Specifically the picture of the piece using all those lovely fleurons.
