Love Letters To Hamilton Wood Type

Orlando-based letterpress printer Mama’s Sauce has created a cool design project to support the Hamilton Wood Type & Print Museum in their move to a new location. They teamed up with seven talented designers to create a set of coasters celebrating A, E, I, O, U, & and Y. They’re currently accepting pre-orders and the letterpress coasters are due to ship 1/25/13.

We’re pleased as punch to give a first look at the artwork contributed for Love Letters! $22 of the $25 purchase price from this set of letterpress printed coasters will go to help sustain the Hamilton Wood Type & Print Museum. Paper for the coasters and packaging has been generously donated by Neenah Paper and French Paper Co.

The star-studded roster of contributing artists is as follows:

A: Fuzzco

E: Justin Mezzell

I: Aaron Draplin

O: Dana Tanamachi

U: Jon Contino

&: Jessica Hische

Y: Ross Moody

The Design Activist’s Handbook by Noah Scalin and Michelle Taute

This manual for design activism is for every designer who’s ever sat at a computer, thinking: Is this it? Isn’t there more? We set out to help graphic designers figure out how to start making a difference and making a living—no matter where they live and work right now. It’s time to translate all this talking and thinking into meaningful, widespread action.
