Curious Creatures & Freakish Oddities

In partnership with Adobe Typekit, the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum will be exhibiting Curious Creatures & Freakish Oddities: A collection of vintage entertainment prints from the Enquirer Collection at TypeCon2018 in Portland, Oregon.

Curious Creatures & Freakish Oddities

The posters include rare circus and entertainment advertisements made from hand-carved wood blocks that date from the 1930s to the 1950s. The collection was acquired in 2016 from the Enquirer Printing Company in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Live printing demonstrations using some of these original blocks will take place during the conference in the Adobe Typekit space.

Prints will be available as souvenirs for TypeCon attendees.
