i heart letterpress!

i have been more than a little obsessed with letterpress lately. i love the handmade, one-at-a-time nature of letterpress printing, and, since i also love music, i wanted to feature hatch show print for this post. hatch show print is based in nashville and has been cranking out concert posters and advertisements since 1879. hatch created posters for ryman auditorium and grand ole opry performers such as johnny cash, bill munroe, and hank williams. check out this video for a look inside the shop, which is still in operation today under manager jim sherraden.
