This time last summer, my family went on a quick trip up to Nashville, Tennessee. (See the photos here!) One of my favorite things we did was go to the Hatch Show Print shop in downtown Nashville. I have screen printed before and am fascinated by their printing process and the posters themselves! I couldn’t afford a poster, so I bought a bunch of post cards!
I found them again cleaning out my desk and thought (due to my new found love of scanning things) I should show them to you!
Here’s a card explaining the history of Hatch Show Print that I picked up.
Fascinating, isn’t it! If you google image search their posters I guarantee you will recognize many of them!
Here are the postcards!
Hah. I love it. I wanted this beautiful Elvis poster but was satisfied the the postcard version.
These next few are from when they test ink colors and spacing for new posters. After a few tests, they are then cut up and sold as postcards! No two are the same.
They are perfect to send to friends or just to keep for inspiration. If you ever go to Nashville, particularly if you are interested in advertising, printing, graphic design, music and all things Americana, you HAVE to stop in!

As you all know, lately I have become consumed with thoughts of vintage photos. Maybe it is only human to think the past is more beautiful, glamorous and idyllic than the present, but these photos just speak to me in a way I cannot explain!
I decided to research some photographers from the 60′s and 70′s and discovered photographer and filmmaker Jerry Schatzberg.
Here are some of his stunning photos!
During the 60′s, his work was featured in VOGUE, Esquire, Glamour, Town + Country and LIFE!
Aren’t they beautiful? I could look at his photos all day!

Unfortunately, I found these images on a tumblr and cannot seem to find it again to give someone credit. Jerry took the photos, I guess that’s all we need to know!
