Field Trip!

29 Nov

My typography class visited the Hamilton Wood Type Museum in Two Rivers, Wisconsin last Tuesday. A good time was had by all, and some lovely work was printed by students in a relatively short span of time.

Special thanks to Museum Director Jim Moran, who always does such a great job hosting us each semester. I think it’s fair to say that we all learned a significant amount about both the history and the potential of wood type. During his thoughtful and informative tour, Jim stated that “preservation through production” (a concept borrowed from Hatch Show Print in Nashville) is a major component of the museum’s mission. And we produced some beautiful things. View on.

Jim Moran uses the pantograph to cut a piece of wood type.

Work by Katie Scott, drying in the rack.

Fresh composition by Todd Johnston.

Those are definitely Megan’s colors.

Good advice from Mai See!


The Heart of a Waterland Playground!

Current UWO Students might be very interested to view this online exhibit of the contents of the fifty-year-old  Clemans Hall time capsule, which was recovered during demolition over the summer. According to University Archivist Joshua P. Ranger, “each item tells us a little bit about the campus in the 1959/1960 school year, a time of enormous growth in the mission, student body, staff and, of course, physical plant of Oshkosh State College.”  Be sure to “flip” over each image for additional information.

What would the student of 2010 put in a time capsule? How things have changed!
