Giuseppe Brachia is the former head of the engraving department of the Nebiolo Company in Turin and the last of his kind. Giuseppe is a punchcutter by trade, he has devoted his career to crafting punch blocks for moveable type machines. Take a look at this beautiful video by Giorgio Affanni and marvel at the unequalled skill and aesthetic sensitivity involved in the dying art of punchcutting.
A film by Giorgio Affanni and Gabriele Chiapparini.
