Hamilton is a working museum that prints with its collections and continues to create new wood type using the original tools and machines from the factory. The “Old Type, New Ways” exhibition showcases original prints, type, printing blocks, and new works created from the collections at the museum. This display is a unique and rare view of American advertising art and the contemporary state of letterpress printing.

A hearty Hamilton 'thank you' to our partners at the MIAD galleries
