Letterpress print. Hatch Show Print Established in 1879, Hatch Show Print reflects the history of American advertising and entertainment, as one of the oldest letterpress print shops in America. Each Hatch Show Print poster is a unique creation, individually handcrafted and inked onto paper in a technique that dates back several centuries. For much of the twentieth century, the shop's vibrant posters served as a leading advertising medium for Southern entertainment, ranging from vaudeville and minstrel shows to magicians and opera singers, from Negro League baseball games to B-movies. Today, musicians, and entertainers from around the world call on Hatch Show Print to design and print iconic posters using the shop's incredible archive of wood type and imagery.


don't like this submitted by bethlang on June 15, 2020, 2:51pm I really don't like these shades of colors. It's boring and dull, nothing special to this painting. 2/5 stars.
