Colby Country presents an investigation and response to the closure of the legendary Colby Poster Printing Company, Los Angeles U.S.A.
Established by Herbert Lee Colby in 1948, the Colby Poster Printing Company (Colby) operated as a three-union, family print shop until 2012. While visiting The International Printing Museum, Carson, CA, USA in 2017, I stumbled across the Colby archive. This discovery set about an intense research period of documentation, interviews, archive and field research to establish the impact of Colby posters on popular culture. It was a privilege to work with the Colby wood type, image blocks and posters at The International Printing Museum during the summer of 2018.
