Monotype event

The work­ing machin­ery of Mono­type­’s hot-met­al ser­vice is housed and oper­at­ed from the Type Archive in Lon­don. The Print­ing His­tor­i­cal Soci­ety is spon­sor­ing an event. It was orig­i­nal­ly announced that this would be held on Mon­day 19 Jan­u­ary, but it has been post­poned and it will now take place on Mon­day 23 Feb­ru­ary at the Type Archive in Lon­don, repos­i­to­ry of the UK Nation­al Type­found­ing Col­lec­tion, which includes the hot-met­al archive of the Mono­type Cor­po­ra­tion. Fur­ther details of this event will be announced on the Soci­ety’s web­site and on the Van­brugh Press web­site Events page.

The Type Archive is housed in build­ings at 100 Hack­ford Road, Lon­don SW9 0QU. The event will high­light the pub­li­ca­tion of the Mono­type Cor­po­ra­tion his­to­ry, the open­ing of the Type Archive’s doors to the pub­lic in small groups (by invi­ta­tion and appoint­ment), and a pro­gramme of Type Archive events, edu­ca­tion and research in 2015.

For more details of the event, and back­ground to the book and the authors see the Van­brugh Press web­site.
