Hamilton Wood Type – WOW

IMG_0969 IMG_0972 IMG_0987 Lucky me … getting to visit the Hamilton Wood Type Museum in Two Rivers, Wisconsin. Since 1880, they have been making wood type – and grew to the largest producer of type in the country. With over 10,000 type families – it is one incredible place. I even got to pull a few prints in their letterpress studio. Now that I am a member of the museum … it comes with some great perks … like the ability to use their sweet studio. I am already planning my next trip back … and getting the time to really explore. The best part about my trip was my mom telling me my uncle earl worked there … along with a cousin of mine. For all graphic designers this is a must see and all need to support a place like this.
