The Cary represented at Hamilton Wayzgoose

Amelia Hugill-Fontanel will be joining a roster of acclaimed speakers from the letterpress printing community at the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum's 2013 Wayzgoose or printers' conference in Two Rivers, Wisconsin on November 8. She will speak about the intricacies of letterpress impression depth through giving several workshops in their pressroom.

The Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum is a success story in the national design community, as it has recently completed a capital campaign to relocate its stores of hundreds of tons of printing equipment and historic wood type. It 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 wood type collections in the world. In addition to wood type, 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.
