As “birthday gift” for the first 25 years (1995–2020), Tipoteca Italiana asked 25 designers and printers, from all over the world, to design and print a poster. The project 25×25. Tipoteca 25 was conceived in this way. Maximum freedom of creation was left, except for a few rules: the size (50 × 70 cm), the colors (maximum 4 colors), and the printing technique (letterpress). Over half of the posters were made directly in the printshops of the invited designers; instead, those who had no way of printing the poster in their studio were sent a Type-Kit, consisting of the digital scan of twenty typefaces from the Tipoteca archive with which they could design the posters. The print would have been performed by the Tipoteca Stamperia on the basis of the indications of colors, fonts, and layout established by each graphic designer. And so it was.

Jim Moran is the Museum director of Hamilton. He runs letterpress workshops, archives the collection and maintains the museum on a daily basis. The Hamilton Wood Type and Printing Museum of Two Rivers is the only museum dedicated to the preservation, study, production and printing of wood type. It holds one of the largest collections of woodtype and printing equipment in the world.
