The 10-minute short premiered at the V&A on September 13 and was made by Adrian Harrison, who has also produced films on fairground sign writing and lettering artist Joby Carter.

As well as documenting the design process, it features a 3D timelapse of letters being printed and a look at New North Press’ impressive collection of wood type and letterpress equipment.

As we reported in our blog post, the font will be used in New North Press’ letterpress workshops and the studio is also selling a series of fluoro specimen posters on its website.
