Throughout 2019, 28 posters were created by a diverse group of printers for HAM AT 20. This is a celebratory poster series that honors the 20th anniversary of the museum. Many printers were invited to contribute and others volunteered; all were united by a passion for type, printing and Hamilton itself. The only directive was to include wood type. Design, content & materials were at the discretion of the individual printers/teams. All sales directly benefit the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum
HAM AT 20 was organized by Jennifer Farrell of Starshaped Press, also celebrating its 20th anniversary as a letterpress studio. Jen is artist-in-residence for 2019-2021 and HAM AT 20 is her first initiative with the museum.
All prints are currently on display at the museum until December 31, 2019. Individual posters are available in the Hamilton shop or on the website while they last and a limited number of portfolios are available for preorder now.
Now is your chance to see all the work in one place and read about each artist's background and their connection to Hamilton. These digitally printed catalogs are a great way to celebrate the museum's 20th anniversary and be inspired by printers from all over the United States.
Preorder now and printed catalogs will ship in early 2020.
