Archivio Tipografico is a collaborative space for the preservation, the study and the practice of typographic arts, based in Torino, northern Italy, active since 2003. The aims are to preserve, to keep alive and to reinvent in a contemporary way the craftsmanship knowledge for movable types composition and high-quality letterpress printing. Our name is an homage to the company magazine of the great Nebiolo Foundry.
Letterpress is not a style for us, but a high-quality medium of expression and a very specific design attitude, that gives back to the designer the control of the whole process including the production. We contaminate analog and digital aspects of this work, because we think that the overlapping area of the two is the more interesting expressing way of it. Spanning from traditional movable types composition, to polymer or laser cut plates out from digital files, we also produce custom digital font based on historic movable types references and research.
