Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this age of digital media, the handcrafted ethic and aesthetic of a Hatch Show Print poster is beyond compare. Country musicians and magicians, professional wrestlers and rock stars, all have turned to Nashville's historic Hatch Show Print to create showstopping posters. Established in 1879, Hatch preserves the art of traditional printing that has earned a loyal following to this day (including the likes of Beck, Emmylou Harris, and the Beastie Boys). Hatch Show Print: The History of a Great American Poster Shop is the first fully illustrated tour of this iconic print shop and also chronicles the long life and large cast of employees, entertainers, and American legends whose histories are intertwined with it. Complete with 190 illustrations--as well as a special book jacket that unfolds to reveal an original Hatch poster on the reverse--Hatch Show Print is a dazzling document of this legendary institution.

Book News Annotation:

A fully illustrated tour of Nashville's Hatch Show Print, the iconic institution that has produced show posters for entertainers of all kinds, from country musicians to magicians, professional wrestlers to rock stars. The volume reveals how Hatch Show Print maintains its fidelity to the aesthetic of hand-set, hand-inked, and hand-cranked printing despite the encroachment of modern technology, and how its modern designs fuse the old and new. The 175 illustrations include historical photographs and posters. Sherraden and Elek Horvath are associated with Hatch Show Print, and Paul Kingsbury directs education and special research for the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum. Oversize: 10.5x10.5<">.
