last Summer we took a little trip to the Hamilton Type Museum in Two Rivers, Wisconsin. You can read all about our lovely day here. This glorious place needs our help and needs it NOW.
The Hamilton Wood Type Museum is the only museum dedicated to the preservation, study, production and printing of wood type. With over 1.5 million pieces of wood type and historical equipment in their collection.
This is the time of the year that people tend to think about giving. Plz consider giving to them as they are in the process of raising $250,000 for the move and a building of their own.
From the Hamilton website: Help! Hamilton is being forced to move mid-February. The owners of our building, Thermo Fisher Scientific, have given us 90 days to pack and vacate the building. We have little or no money to do this and no place to move to. We are attempting to raise $250,000 in short order to get 30,000 sq. feet of printing history packed up and ready for a new home, wherever that may be. PLEASE consider a donation today. If you're in the creative field let your employer know we need them as well. They can contact artistic director Bill Moran at Bill@woodtype.org to learn more. You can download a donation formÂ hereÂ or click here to give online.
When we were there on one of the hottest days of the Summer I could only think how amazed I was that this place even existed. And without our help they might not. Please do whatever you can.
