"Advertising without posters is like fishing without worms"
The above slogan from The Hatch Brothers, started their print shop in 1879 in Nashville, Tn.
Hatch Show Print is one of the oldest running letterpress print shop in America. They still use the original letters, which had been hand carved over 100 years ago on their prints and you can see the little imperfection in the letters from years of use. There is also great book about the history of Hatch Show Print with great pictures of their work.
(Note: for sure that the first 2 images don't have a Hatch Show Print poster, but they are the inspiration for me to write about this.)
