I have done both letterpress and DTP and found  quite the opposite. DTP has
freed me to experiment with layout,type faces, new book structures; it's
freed me to just play. I put all kinds of papers through my printer and
experiment with combining techniques. DTP lets me create and then use the
letterpress if I choose.
