The Struggle

Yesterday I had a review with Ramesh. And while telling him about how I thought my interviews were turning out to be rather "dry, Danika Cooper (also Srishti faculty) overheard the conversation and gave me a whole lot of things I should think about. Some of the questions I need to address are:
  • How did letterpress come to India? 
  • How has the presence of letterpress affected these languages?
  • What significance does letterpress have in terms of the written word of vernacular languages?
  • Who is my target audience (for the final outcome)?
  • Are letterpress printers in India largely only "skilled technicians" versus the artists from the letterpress revival movement abroad?
