Historically a "wayzgoose" was entertainment given by a master printer to his employees at the end of the summer. It was traditionally done on St. Bartholomew's Day (24 August) to mark the coming seasons in which work was done by candlelight. The museum hosts one every year to celebrate printing, graphic design, type design, book making, paper making, and all other designerly delights.
This poster was letterpress printed by Rick Griffith of Matter, a full-service strategic design, typographic, and communications consultancy based in Denver, Colorado. It features a rainbow roll effect for lots of color, a vintage cut from the Globe Collection, and the speakers names from the 2010 Wayzgoose all set in wood type.
