Save the MMOP!

Almost too late but not quite! I received an email last week from Melburnian Daniel Neville (who has a great Melbourne-centric art/design/typography blog which you should definitely visit, btw).

Anyway, Mr Neville was writing to draw my attention to a fundraising event and open day TOMORROW (ie Sunday) in aid of the Melbourne Museum of Printing in Footscray. The MMOP is a working museum of typography and printing, and is the last remaining typefoundry in Australia.

Tomorrow's fundraiser event will take place between 2.00pm and 6.00pm. The line-up will include letterpress and typesetting demonstrations, live music, a print exhibition and sale of limited edition prints by many notable local designers and artists including Jon Campbell, 3 Deep Design, Studio Round, Pip & Co, The Narrows and more.

If you're free tomorrow do take a moment to check it out and lend your support to a very worthy creative cause! Free entry.
