McManus & Morgan is the oldest (and once most prosperous) paper shop in Los Angeles. Aardvark Letterpress is a family-run printing business dating back to the 1940s. Located on the same corner in Downtown LA, the two shops struggle to make ends meet in a decreasingly tactile world. A rare and fascinating inside peek into the archaic worlds of letterpress and paper-selling, this short documentary is a strangely touching story of two interdependent businesses hanging onto their livelihoods and passions, doing whatever it takes to keep their crafts – and dreams – alive.
