Ham at 20
Announcing Ham at 20, a collaborative poster project celebrating the twentieth anniversary of The Hamilton Wood Type and Print Museum in Two Rivers, Wisconsin. For each month of 2019, a new poster (or two!) will be released via the Hamilton website shop in an edition of 50; 25 will be reserved for year-end portfolios that include all prints. The posters will be created by a roster of accomplished letterpress printers and promising up-and-comers starting in the field. In this way, we can carry the important typographic legacy of Hamilton Wood Type through the next generation of designers and printers.
Ham at 20 is my first project as the new Hamilton Visiting Artist for 2019-2021.
Paper for the posters is generously donated by French Paper and by Mohawk Paper for the final portfolios and colophons. All posters will be completed and shown at the annual Wazygoose at Hamilton in November 2019.
