The Printed Word

William Hatch made his mark and opened Hatch Show Print in Nashville in 1879. The first posters off the pristine new press: Announcing that the Rev. Henry Ward Beecher, Harriet's brother, was coming to town. 
Through the years, Nashville has been alerted of circuses, minstrel shows, vaudeville acts, and of course, music concerts by the classic designs of Hatch Show Print.

Tours of Hatch are free, and the posters aren't so bad either at around $16 a pop.

  1. That Johnny Cash poster is phenomenal. Could go Southern, could go urban hipster in Brooklyn...
