Hatch Show Print is the first chronicle of this letterpress poster shop that has become an American institution. Copious images of the fabulous posters that this, the oldest letterpress in the United States, display its rich history. Established in 1879 and now owned by the Country Music Foundation, Hatch Show Print preserves the art of traditional printing and has earned a loyal following that continues to this day. With nearly 200 images and historically revealing text, the Hatch story is often told through the experiences of the artists who have worked with the shop: Patsy Cline, Elvis Presley, Hank Williams, REM, and many more. To this day, bands from Nashville to New Orleans to New York can count on Hatch to quickly turn out a bold and distinctive poster that telegraphs the essential who-what-where-and-when with style. A slice of design history that is American as apple pie!
