This Portuguese letterpress manual (PRACTICAL HANDBOOK OF THE TYPOGRAPHER) was created by Joana Monteiro for use in the context of traditional (hands on!) typography workshops. The publication consists of a glossary of key terms and describes the various phases and materials used for good practice.

Beautifully designed, composed and printed by hand, the manual makes traditional information available to people new to the craft. Joana's intention was to create a foundation of understanding that facilitates communication within traditional typography workshops, thus narrowing the gap between new practitioners, technicians and designers.
