About The Hamilton Wood Type and Printing Museum
The Hamilton Wood Type and Printing Museum is the only museum dedicated to the preservation, study, production and printing of wood type. With 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 collections in the world. In addition, the Museum is home to an amazing array of advertising cuts from the 1930s through the 1970s, and all of the equipment necessary to make wood type and print with it, as well as equipment used in the production of hot metal type, tools of the craft and rare type specimen catalogs.
Hamilton Wood Type began producing type in 1880 and within 20 years became the largest provider in the United States. Today, Jim Moran, Stephanie Carpenter and Bill Moran preserve this legacy and host educational demonstrations, field trips, workshops and offer opportunities with this vast wood type collection.
