Hatch Show Print Book
There's still something magical about letterpress posters. Maybe it's that they're still hand-made, one of the last leftovers from before the great desktop publishing revolution. Maybe it's their imperfections and the fact that each one is unique. Whatever it is, I love them, and Hatch has been making them for quite some time. They're almost an institution. This book chronicles the history of the shop and some of their work. Definitely a must for poster-lovers.
This book inspired my design sensibility. Even if you design on computers, this book will help you discover new techniques that add character. This isn't a "how-to" by any means- rather it chronicles a Tennessee poster printer from inception to present day. But you can't help but be inspired!
