Some of you may have already heard the sad news - the Type Museum in London is to close. This is what I received:
The trustees of the Type Museum have taken the decision this week to
CLOSE and disperse the museum due to lack of funding.
These unique collections spanning the evolution of type design and
manufacture will be split up and the majority put into storage -
unlikely to see the light of day again.
You are receiving this email because you have previously expressed
your interest in, and support for the Type Museum. We need your help
urgently if we are save the Type Museum as a working resource for the
future. Apologies if you have received any cross postings.
A meeting is scheduled to launch a Type Museum Society campaign to
ensure a working future for the collections.
18:30 on Wednesday 24 May at the Type Museum, 100 Hackford Road SW9 0QU
All welcome. We need every kind of active support if we are to succeed.
If you are able to come along, or have any other time, ideas (or
money!) to offer please let us know at:
Thank you in anticipation
for the Type Museum Society
