The title pages of Land-Grant’s first issue are based on old Hatch Show Print Shop block letter press posters. Dave Schuman and I were at Sewanee together this summer, and we stopped in Nashville on our way out there and bought a couple of posters at the Hatch Show Print Shop. We were so obsessed with them that, at one point during the conference, we considered buying a separate fan to point at them so they wouldn’t wilt in the Tennessee heat. We talked about hanging them up in the dorm room they had us staying in, but it never happened.
