Established since 2008, Typoretum was founded by Justin Knopp and his wife Cecilia in response to an increasing demand for Justine's typographical design and letterpress printing skills. Justin studied BA (hons) Graphic Design at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design (1991-1994), specialising in typography and printmaking. Since graduating, his involvement with letterpress printing has deepened and he has amassed a substantial collection of lead and antique wooden types, printing machines and other paraphernalia, much of which he has rescued and restored to working order. Today Typoretum is a busy, family run, contemporary letterpress design and 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.
