Tucked away in the small Wisconsin city of Two Rivers is the only museum dedicated to the preservation, study, and printing of wood type. With 1.5 million pieces, the Hamilton Wood Type Museum’s collection is one of the premier wood type collections in the world. Finally getting much deserved attention, the museum was the subject of the documentary, Typeface, and Target also recently utilized the collection for their Vintage Varsity line.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
