Typoretum was founded by Justin Knopp and his wife Cecilia in response to the recent revival of letterpress printing.
Justin’s first interest in the aesthetics of letterpress came whilst he studied BA (hons) Graphic Design at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design (1991–1994). Since graduating, his involvement with letterpress printing deepened and he amassed a substantial collection of lead and antique wooden types, printing machines and other paraphernalia.
Today Typoretum is a busy, family run, contemporary letterpress design & printing studio offering a wide variety of services. These include short courses and internship opportunities to ensure that the craft is kept alive and continues to be taught to a new generation of letterpress printers, designers and enthusiasts.
