Hatch Show Print, a working letterpress print shop since 1879, uses its vast collection of vintage type and hand-carved imagery to create timeless designs that express and commemorate America's evolving cultural identity.
The print highlights the magical wall o'wood, a sixty foot wall of shelves where the shop's large wood type and many of the hand-carved printing blocks are stored, to clearly express the food-friendly message. The word "EAT" is set using 100 pica, or nearly 17 inches, of wood type, likely carved in the shop before 1900. It is punctuated with an exclamation mark from a display typeface that would be used to really grab your attention!
