The Art of Hatch Show Print
Nashville's Hatch Show Print will have some letterpress posters on exhibit at the EMP|SFM beginning October 11th. Hatch is one of the nation's oldest printing shops and has been in operation since 1879. The exhibition will feature some great American entertainment posters that are printed on large presses with wood type and blocks. On the opening day there will be a letterpress workshop at the museum from 11 to 3pm. The exhibit is open from 10 to 5pm daily, and costs a whopping $15 to attend. (Although I believe it is free on First Thursdays of every month from 5 to 8pm). The show continues through July 16th.
