My husband and I were in Nashville last week, and one of the places I absolutely HAD to go to was Hatch Show Print. The smell and sound of the presses working, all those lines of type! Ah, it was a brief journey back into another era. When I was a kid, I had two idols, Julia Child and Benjamin Franklin. Yeah, I know...weird kid. Anyway, I briefly imagined ol' Ben printing away with his 3-penny loaf of bread nearby, and me watching, typing on my electronic typewriter that was reminiscent of those clickety-clacking presses.
Here's some pictures for your enjoyment, along with a poster I bought there. It's still a little curled, so please forgive. For more on Hatch Show Print, click here.

Here's the poster I bought. They rolled it up so nicely for me!
