Hatch Show Print
June 13, 2009 § 1 Comment
The June Anthropologie catalog, as all of their catalogs are, is pretty amazing – it features art by Hatch Show Print. Believe it or not, you probably are familiar with their work, even if you don’t realize it. Founded in the late 19th century, Hatch Show Print features classic letterpress design in the same style that they began over a hundred years ago. The company mostly produces country music posters and advertisements, but branches out for other projects. Hatch also used to do a great deal of minstrel and vaudeville shows, as well as circuses.
As we are all aware, I am a typography dork, and I have lately become just obsessed with letterpress. So let’s start where they started, in the beginning.
So you get the gist – now let’s look at this month’s Anthropologie. Oh, by the way, you can order all of these (and MANY more) at very affordable prices as posters on The Country Music Hall of Fame Store Site. Also, by the way, the new Anthropologie catalog’s home stuff is amazing – their room set-ups are cozy, rumpled, bohemian lovely.
