This past weekend I was fortunate enough to visit the Hamilton Wood Type Museum in Two Rivers, Wisconsin for its First annual wayzgoose. The event featured an amazing array of lectures (Rich Kegler, Paul Brown, Juliet Chen) as well as some amazing demonstrations and workshops. A veritable mecca for wood type enthusiasts (rivaled only by the Rob Roy Kelly collection at the University of Texas, Austin), Hamilton was the perfect place to go to get advice on my project. Where else would I find so many people interested in the same print implements or who had considered so many of the same problems and possible solutions?
I’ll skip the laundry list for now, but I will come back to it. Until then, some pictures from the event and of the wood type collection.
