This three color poster features the Hamilton Manufacturing Company logo, an image of the factory facility, the original address, a couple half round images, and some fine Hamilton type and borders. A fine 12.5" x 19.5" letterpress printed poster in three colors.
Tuscan Level: $100/yr
We will send you: One copy of the DVD Typeface, one facsimile copy of W.H. Page's 1886 type specimen catalog, and one Hamilton notebook. This collection of goodies will make you the envy of all your type friends. If you can't be in Two Rivers watching Kartemquin's Typeface will make you feel that way. Then you can spend some time perusing the Wm. H. Page Type Specimen facsimile that was published by Dave Peat. And you can jot down all your inspiration in a brightly colored notepad that has a letterpress printed cover.
Egyptian Level: $250/yr
We will send you: A poster showcasing the history and experience of Hamilton printed here at the museum from original Hamilton borders by Paul Brown. A beautiful letterpress printed poster at 17" x 19", two colors: black and metallic copper.
Aetna Level: $500/yr
We will send you: A limited-edition reproduction of Hamilton Wood Type's 1893 Columbian Exposition poster. Printed on Rives Deline paper and measuring 25" x 52" this edition, numbering 80 copies, was made from the original 1893 Plaque. This "ghost print" is the result of printing through a thin but durable film as inking the original type was not possible.
