Virtual Letterpress on Your iPad | Kickstarter

I love this iPad app, & so do 933 (and counting) other backers on Kickstarter too. What's not to love, they're keeping the art of letterpress alive in the digital medium. It's already got more than enough pledges and good luck to John Bonadies and team with this gem of a design project.

"Experience the Art and Craft of Letterpress Printing on your iPad
LetterMpress™ will be a virtual letterpress environment—released first on the iPad—that will allow anyone to create authentic-looking letterpress designs and prints.  The design process is the same as the letterpress process—you place and arrange type and cuts on a press bed, lock the type, ink the type, and print. You will be able to create unlimited designs, with multiple colors, using authentic vintage wood type and art cuts. And you can print your design directly from LetterMpress or save it as an image for import it into other applications." http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/821242145/lettermpress-a-virtual-letterpr...

Wired & Adobe iPad App: A Video Demonstration

Adobe and Wired's concept work on a touchscreen magazine. Narrated by Jeremy and Wired Creative Director Scott Dadich, who led the tablet team.

"But what is already clear is that they offer the opportunity to be beautiful, highly engaging and immersive, going beyond what’s available on the web. I think tablets are going to sell like hotcakes, in part because they offer such an intimate, rich media experience. We’re betting big on them, as you can see, but this is just a taste."
