Hamilton Wood Type - WOW

Lucky me ... getting to visit the Hamilton Wood Type Museum in Two Rivers, Wisconsin. Since 1880, they have been making wood type - and grew to the largest producer of type in the country. With over 10,000 type families - it is one incredible place. I even got to pull a few prints in their letterpress studio. Now that I am a member of the museum ... it comes with some great perks ... like the ability to use their sweet studio. I am already planning my next trip back ... and getting the time to really explore. The best part about my trip was my mom telling me my uncle earl worked there ... along with a cousin of mine. For all graphic designers this is a must see and all need to support a place like this.
