A chocolate bar and a piece of soap create a three-dimensional image of a letterpress printing form, while their package features a printed version of the same composition. Letterpress printing is a process that takes a lot of time, skill and effort before achieving a result — a printed page, not to mention an entire book. Once the print is completed and dry, all the process remains unseen, from the history of this craft to the process, skill and time invested in its making. Only by making a 3D imprint is it possible to reveal the whole story, and consequently the beauty of the process.
