Silver Buckle Press offered a symposium in 1998 on the impact of digital technologies and the Internet on letterpress printing and book arts. We called it Hot Type in a Cold World since traditionally letterpress is described as "hot type" and photo- and computer typesetting are called "cold." (And this is Wisconsin.)
In 2005 we offered a second Hot Type symposium when we began working with a 21st century hot metal type designed and cast by Dale Guild as a facsimile of Johan Gutenberg's types. We called this program Recasting Gutenberg and the talks were about contemporary practice and digital research newly available to study the earliest type manufacturing.
