A special someone gifted me the visit to this museum, as a 26th birthday present. We flew into Chicago and drove up along Lake Michigan to Two Rivers until we saw the tall smokestack that said "Hamilton."
Vintage and handcrafted eye-candy abounds in the museum, as well as past and current printed material from linocut broadsides to typeset posters. One wall featured a collage of oversized wood typography that superstore Target used as a background for models in a fairly recent photo shoot. (Target collaborated with Hamilton to create a line of type-centered apparel. Check out the video here!) Once a factory, now a museum.
