Hey y'all, this should be a great luncheon. I hope you can make it out for it!

Join Bill Moran of Blinc Publishing for a virtual tour of one of the oldest type manufacturers in the country—Hamilton Wood Type and Printing Museum located on Lake Michigan in Two Rivers, Wisconsin. With over 3 million pieces of wood type and more than 1,000 styles and sizes of patterns in their collection, Hamilton Wood Type and Printing Museum is a working museum whose staff and volunteers demonstrate the manufacturing process of Hollywood type introduced by Edward Hamilton in 1880. If you are thinking about a design-related road trip this summer, Hamilton Wood Type and Printing Museum is a 5-hour drive from the Twin Cities and a great place to have a hands-on learning experience.
