Hatch Show Print


UPPERCASE will be presenting the letterpress posters of Hatch Show Print this July and August. Contact us to reserve your copy of the book.


By Jim Sherraden and Elek Horvath and Paul Kingsbury

Published in March, 2001

In this age of digital media, the handcrafted ethic and aesthetic of a Hatch Show Print poster is beyond compare. Country musicians and magicians, professional wrestlers and rock stars, all have turned to Nashville's historic Hatch Show Print to create showstopping posters. Established in 1879, Hatch preserves the art of traditional printing that has earned a loyal following to this day (including the likes of Beck, Emmylou Harris, and the Beastie Boys). Hatch Show Print: The History of a Great American Poster Shop is the first fully illustrated tour of this iconic print shop and also chronicles the long life and large cast of employees, entertainers, and American legends whose histories are intertwined with it. Complete with 190 illustrations--as well as a special book jacket that unfolds to reveal an original Hatch poster on the reverse--Hatch Show Print is a dazzling document of this legendary institution.

Jim Sherraden who has been the manager of Hatch Show Print since 1984.

Elek Horvath a deputy at Hatch Show Print and is well-versed in its history, lore, and technical aspects.

Paul Kingsbury an award-winning author of several books and Deputy Director of Educational Research and Special Projects of the Country Music Foundation. All three authors live in Nashville.
