The documentary about the Hamilton Wood Type Museum was heartbreaking and hopeful.
The movie takes a look inside the big factory up in Two Rivers, Wisconsin that is packed to the gills with wood type and printing machines. Combine that with stories from former employees and a group of folks that are trying to keep it alive and open for future generations.
It’s heavy, for sure, as technology shifts traditional methods of communication. But they end on a high note as the museum gets a new sense of purpose, opening up the doors to workshops and education.
Me? I’m adding the museum as A Place To Visit.
(And Two Rivers, Wisconsin is home of the ice cream sundae, so there’s a little bonus for the roadtrip.)
