The Hatch Show Print in legendary Nashville collection!
Nashville’s legendary letterpress print shop was founded by the brothers Hatch in 1879 and remains the living heartbeat of classic American poster design. Since the early days of Field Notes Quarterly Editions, it is knewed that to explore the history of American printing, publishing and design, Field Notes have to collaborate with Hatch Show Print.
Hatch is known for letterpress-printed posters. For many years, they’ve found ways to recombine their enormous archive of historic images and type in ways that always seem fresh and vibrant, but also timeless. Hatch makes large posters. Field Notes make small notebooks. Here’s how Field Notes worked together:
Field Notes imagined a three-poster public service campaign about effective poster design, which is named Pressing Issues: A Series on Ink, Paper, and Muscle. Field Notes wrote some copy and made a couple of really rough sketches and then left it to the crew at Hatch to design and print.
And. They. Killed. It.
Next, Field Notes cut up the three finished posters into covers for its Fall Memo Books. Each poster yielded six covers, and Field Notes included one book from each poster in the 3-Packs. As a result of that, and the natural variations in letterpress printing, there’s a ton of variety in the run.
The covers are on Domtar Cougar 100-lb white cover stock with a brute-force application of a variety of hand-mixed Kennedy oil-based inks, including “Just About Pantone 637.” The body pages are ruled in light blue on a smooth 60-lb text stock from Finch.
