Type galore in rural midwest


Justine Nagan’s feature-length documentary Typeface tells the story of the Hamilton Wood Type Museum in Two Rivers, WI. The museum contains over 1.5 million pieces of wood type and more than 1,000 styles and sizes of patterns, Hamilton's collection is one of the premier wood type collections in the world.

Typeface (the film) will be premiering in London and several U.S. cities this month. A DVD release is expected later this year.

Anyone have friends near Two Rivers? Next time I find myself in the midwest, I would love to take a detour.
