Letterpress Emancipation Proclamation Poster Evokes Civil War-era Broadsides

PosterCommemorate the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation with this limited-edition letterpress poster.

This unique collectible was created using antique wood type and ornamentation set by hand at Hatch Show Print in Nashville, Tennessee, one of the oldest working letterpress shops in the U.S. (It opened about 15 years after the end of the Civil War.)  “We’re proud to be part of such a momentous occasion in such a modern context,” said shop manager Jim Sherraden.

The 16 x 23-inch poster, which is numbered and has been signed by designer Gail Anderson, is perfect for framing and will make a truly distinctive addition to your collection. Unsigned copies of the poster are also available.
