Hamilton Wood Type Museum in Two Rivers, Wisconsin


After visiting the Kohler Arts & Design Centers we headed North to Two Rivers where we stopped and visited the Hamilton Wood Type Museum. Jim Moran, the printer/archivist of the museum, showed us around and even demonstrated a unique wood block type cutting machine. Chris and I loved the posters that they had reprinted from old blocks and we also enjoyed looking at all of the different font styles.
