Our friend Jill Kuczmarski was at a Hamilton Wood Type Museum workshop up in Wisconsin a couple weeks ago. The Workshop was led by Jim Sherraden of Hatch Show Print fame, who brought along some vintage lumber from Hatch’s Collection.”

Jill noticed her classmate, AIGA Wisconsin VP Gage Mitchell, loading up his FIELD NOTES memo books with Hatch imagery and cuts from Hamilton’s “Globe Collection,” the results of which are shown here. Thanks for the images, Gage!

Gage and Jill add that Jim Moran and the other people who run the museum are “ridiculous nice and need all the support they can get.” Supporting the Hamilton Wood Type Museum also scores you some good benefits and allows you to use their print shop for $35/day.

UPDATE: The film Typeface, a documentary about the Hamilton Wood Type Museum, is playing later this month at the Siskel Film Center in Chicago. (Thanks, STA Chicago!)
