We are taking a little field trip today to Hatch Show Print on Broadway in Downtown Nashville Tennessee. It is one of the oldest american poster shops where they still make letterpress and block printed posters by hand.
These posters have a turn of the century irresistible appeal. Hatch posters were first used to promote vaudeville, circus, and minstrel shows across the country.
There's a reason why music lovers, Americana buffs, graphic arts collectors and designers, and commercial advertisers of all persuasions continue to turn to Hatch for inspiration.
This is the poster I purchased. It Captures the singing spirit of Music City USA, this three-color Hatch Show Print poster takes historic Hatch elements and updates them stylishly. The end result—a dynamic artistic approach to the essence of Nashville, Tennessee.
