A white sheet can also instil fear. The fear of not knowing exactly what to do with it, a divide between staying still and making a move, reflecting the relationship between individual and community.
The idea that lies at the root of the Letterpress Workers project, now a regular international event for print designers held in Milan annually, is that graphic design should play an active role in society and therefore also give an account of what drives it.
The 2016 event addressed the concept of fear. The book, by means of a collective visual narrative, gathers works emerging from this sodality and explores its social implications, starting from the graphic project, freely inspired by Dutch designer Willem Sandberg, whose human and professional example embodied the very spirit of this event.
