Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type


Hi there, I'm emailing to ask if you'd be able to answer a short survey which aims to collect thoughts on the future of the Science Museum Group's Monotype Collection.

Monotype transformed printing and publishing worldwide. Its faster, cheaper, advanced technology led to mass market Penguin paperbacks and newly designed typefaces like Gill Sans and Times New Roman.

Although inevitably superseded, much of Monotype's legacy of typography and technology is encapsulated in the Monotype Collection, held by the Science Museum Group.

The Science Museum Group has commissioned Cultural Associates Oxford to explore the next chapter for the Monotype Collection. How might new generations use the Collection? How might it inspire creative practice? How might it contribute to teaching and research? We'd like to hear your views.

Could you take a few minutes to complete a survey about your potential interest in the Monotype Collection and, if you'd like to, give us your thoughts or ideas about how you might engage with it or bring it to life for others.

The link to the survey is:

Please share this link further with your network and printing community – we'd love to hear from as many voices as possible. Very many thanks in advance. All the best Tamsin


Thanks Tamsin! This is great news. Survey complete & submitted.
