Airs Sunday May 4th
The Emmy-nominated documentary TYPEFACE explores the twilight - and re-emergence - of one analog craft in a digital age. One weekend a month, the Hamilton Wood Type Museum in rural Two Rivers, Wisconsin comes to life as artisans from across the Midwest descend on the sleepy enclave to teach and attend printmaking workshops. At Hamilton, international artisans meet retired craftsmen and together navigate the convergence of modern design and traditional technique. However, the museum's days appear numbered as it struggles to re-invent itself amid tell-tale signs of economic decay. Does the future of the industry lie in the past? What responsibility do artists and historians bear in preserving a dying craft? How can rural towns survive in a shifting industrial marketplace where big-box retailers reign? TYPEFACE contemplates these questions and more as it explores the fascinating junction of the historical and contemporary, the urban and the rural.
