Hatch Cats Poster
No proper print shop is complete without a shop cat. This two-color, handmade poster is a great gift for cat lovers and a fond reminder for anyone who has visited our Nashville shop.
We like to think of cats as art in motion or, more likely, art at leisure. Two of Hatch's favorite resident shop cats, the rotund Huey and the inscrutable Maow shown on this original piece are celebrated like a circus act in this popular poster created by Hatch Show Print.
When the shop was on lower Broadway, and the local feed and seed a few blocks away closed, the neighborhood rats and mice started exploring the other businesses in the neighborhood, including Hatch Show Print. Huey was adopted from a local shelter. After he caught all the rodents and grew fat and lazy, Maow was adopted and became Huey's counterpart to catch mice in the shop.
Over the years, staff have captured the cats' essences, in hand-carved printing blocks, and this piece in particular is a favorite.
