This is one of those books that offers compelling stories and stunning images. We are thrilled to be giving away a copy of Hatch Show Print: The History of a Great American Poster Shop, courtesy of Chronicle Books. Here's a description from the Chronicle website:
"Country musicians and magicians, professional wrestlers and rock stars, all have turned to Nashville's historic Hatch Show Print to create showstopping posters. Established in 1879, Hatch preserves the art of traditional printing that has earned a loyal following to this day (including the likes of Beck, Emmylou Harris, and the Beastie Boys)."
The book provides an illustrated tour of the print shop and documents the lives of the people who have come through Hatch Show Print from employees to entertainers. And this might be the coolest part of it all: Unfold the book jacket and you've got yourself an original poster.
So how do you win this copy of Hatch Show Print? Just leave a comment below telling us about your favorite poster of all-time. We'll run this post for
24 48 hours, and then choose our favorite comment. The recipient will be announced on Monday. (We'll follow up via email in order to send out the book as soon as possible.) In exchange for having this volume bestowed upon you, we ask that you submit a review later.
Thanks, Chronicle Books!
