No one should ever visit Nashville, Tennessee without visiting the greatest letterpress print shop on the planet: Hatch Show Print.
Now part of the Country Music Hall of Fame and located in somewhat incongruously swanky digs at 224 5th Ave. in South Nashville, Hatch Show Print has been rolling presses since 1879.
Hatch Show Prints have advertised concerts from Duke Ellington, and Louis Armstrong to Johnny Cast to Bob Dylan and even to Yes (see below).
Our only regret was arriving too late on a Sunday to get the full tour of the print shop, so if you’re heading to Nashville, plan ahead!
Here are some shots of this legendary shop and some of their work for the world’s greatest progressive rock band:
