2017 and the revival of letterpress

In 2016 I have written a master thesis about the contemporary letterpress with the title: “Letterpress and its Revival”. Hope 2017 will be a much better year for all of us and letterpress, happy new year to all the letterpress lovers.

And to you as well Konurk. Is your thesis posted for reading? I would like to do that.

What America needs is a good revival!

Or can you scan it to a PDF and either email it or put it where it can be read and/or downloaded? I also would be very interested in reading it.


Would love to read you work. Please post or set up a link if posssible.
Thx, Happy New Year.

Thanks for the comments, unfortunately it’s written in Turkish. When I have time to translate it to English, ofcourse I’ll share it with foreign letterpress communities too.
Turkish thesis can be download from this link:

author search name: Konur Koldaş

happy new year to all…

Konur — my son who is fluent in Tartar, Turkish descent right?, may be able to do that … I will check!


they are from the same language family, but as I know, they are quite different. the best thing I’ll do is to translate it to english I think. more than 100 pages will take time, but sharing is good.

I would look forward to that — and sorry for the typo, that should have read : “who is fluent in Tatar”

blessings and ink in this New Year

Yes please Konurk, from here in the UK would be glad to read it. Have been working to help the revival over here in
various ways for about 50 years! Have the accents for Modern Turkish but only in 10 point and have printed a poem in that.
