Hamilton Wood Type Now on Etsy

Hand-printed poster reading They say patriotism is the last refuge to which the scoundrel clings. Steal a little and they throw you in jail. Steal a lot & they make you king!

One of my all-time favorites, the Hamilton Wood Type Museum, has just launched a shop on etsy.com.

Only a few items are available on it so far, including this nice poster ($35.00 plus shipping). The other items are all large-scale reprints from the Globe Collection (which I have seen during my visits to the museum). But this one was new to me.

They don't say who the print artist is, but here's the description:

Song smith Bob Dylan borrowed this little gem from British writer Samuel Johnson and gave it his own twist on the classic 1983 album Infidels. Hand-brayered to look like Old Glory this poster measuring 18" x 26" is the perfect gift for the Anarchist in your life.
There are close-ups of it on the Etsy shop. These posters are underpriced, in my opinion.
