Detroit has a long history of typography and lettering culture: from posters, to advertising, to stunning murals. Signal-Return nonprofit and printshop is leading the Detroit revival of letterpress printing, with impressive original equipment and type specimens and an array of workshops. On my recent trip, I stopped by to take a tour.
