Emergency fundraising at Hamilton Wood Type

Saturday, November 17th, 2012

The Hamilton Wood Type Museum in Two Rivers, Wisconsin, has been served notice that they will have to vacate their building, perhaps as soon as mid February of 2013. Read details in their press release. If you’d like to donate without reading first, this page will permit that.

If you’re in or near Chicago, consider attending APHA Chicago Chapter’s pre-holiday print sale and party from 12–6 Saturday, December 15th. It will be held at the Center for Book and Paper Arts at Columbia College, and will benefit the Hamilton museum.

Documentary will be part of Hamilton Wood Type Museum’s anniversary celebration

Thursday, May 14th, 2009

“The Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum, 1619 Jefferson St., will celebrate its 10th anniversary with at least one showing of a documentary about the museum and with an open house. Kartemquin Films out of Chicago made a documentary about the museum last year, according to Jim Moran, printer and archivist for the museum. The film, called “Typeface,” will be shown at the Washington House, 1622 Jefferson St., at 9 p.m. May 29. The showing is part of an appreciation dinner for volunteers who work at the four museums run by the Two Rivers Historical Society, but the film presentation is open to the public. A second showing of the film may be held the next afternoon, Moran said.” read more at the Herald Times Reporter.
