From advice and tips to articles on history and typography, and sources of supply, there are numerous websites available full of helpful information.

Letterpress has had hobby enthusiasts for decades, long before it virtually vanished commercially, and they are usually very helpful and pleased to encourage newcomers to the craft. Most of the sites (apart from the museum ones) are run by volunteers.
