Summary:
At the Hamilton Wood Type Museum in rural Two Rivers, Wisconsin, a lone employee waits in a cavernous old building for visitors that rarely come--a few individuals straggle in every few days--until one Friday, every month, when the museum comes to life. For one weekend each month, the quiet of Two Rivers is interrupted by carloads of artisans driving in from across the Midwest, and the town comes alive as printmaking workshops led by, and filled with, some of the nations top design talent descend on the sleepy enclave. International artisans meet retired craftsmen and together navigate the convergence of modern design and traditional technique. TYPEFACE explores the twilight of an analog craft that is freshly inspiring artists in a digital age, and the museum in Two Rivers personifies cultural preservation, rural re-birth, and the lineage of American graphic design. But the museum's future is unclear. What is the responsibility of artists and historians to preserve a dying craft?
