If you're a fan of letterpress, wood type, typography or fashion, you have probably already heard a lot of news about the fantastic new line of Target Style clothing inspired by Hamilton Wood type and Printing Museum. The "Cool Never Fades" line is already in stores and available online from July 17. Amid the excitement, a couple of difference sources have noted the pivotal role of our film Typeface in inspiring the collection's genesis.
We're very excited for the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum, featured in our film Typeface, and currently enjoying an unprecedented level of success. This week saw the launch of a video titled "Cool Never Fades," which introduces a new fall line of clothing inspired by the Hamilton museum that will be hitting Target stores from July 11!
Typeface continues its plucky bid for wood-type-based world domination in the next few weeks with a number of new broadcasts added for the USA through PBS and Europe through the Sundance Channel. Wood Type and Letterpress fans in France and Belgium can also now watch the film via the Sundance Channel in those countries.
