Old-Time Herald Magazine

Circular Mark, 2010

The Old Time Herald is a magazine dedicated to old-time string band music, both in Appalachia and around the world. It was founded in 1987 by old-time music preservationist and performer Alice Gerrard, and features articles on legendary fiddlers, banjo players and string bands, as well as covering the work of those influenced by them today. All artwork for this mark was hand-set and proofed from wood and metal type and ornamentation at Yee-Haw Industrial Letterpress, and then scanned and inverted for printing. The mark is seen most often in sticker form on instrument cases at fiddler's conventions, music festivals and old-time jams.
