Photos by Joshua Barrett, TU Student Writer/Photographer

Richard Curtis, Professor of Art at Thomas University, speaks about his summer internship experience at Hatch Show Print during a TU Talk presented Wednesday, Oct. 25, in Smith-Bonvillian Hall. Located in Nashville, Tennessee, Hatch Show Print is one of the oldest letterpress shops still in existence. While there Curtis learned the intricacies of letterpress printing, which involves using movable type and was first used for printing books in the 1500s. Hatch Print Shop produces posters for concerts and other events around the world using the original wooden and metal typeface. TU Talks are presented by the TU Library.
