Type Museum Call for Help

Type Museum on the Brink of Closure: Your Help is Urgently Needed!

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.

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 24th 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 email us at typemuseumsociety@gmail.com.

Thank you in anticipation
