Here at Hamilton, wood type is our business. Beginning in 1880, James Edward Hamilton made type unlike all the rest. In a short time Hamilton became an industry leader.
George Liesch, a second generation type cutter, has been hard at work creating 100% Hamilton wood type. This is a unique opportunity to purchase a piece of Hamilton history, made right here at the museum.
While this piece isn't meant for printing, it is type high, hard rock maple and made on our vintage pantograph. This right reading catchphrase is perfect for that letterpress or typographer friend.
