I am preparing for the four flights Owl-Kitten and I have today (and into tomorrow) to move from my beloved home in Minneapolis, Minnesota to Bangkok, Thailand. This will be a great new adventure, but also comes with a tinge of sadness as I sell my house, leave a place, jobs, and people I adore.
It is fitting that while I am packed and headed to O'Hare airport, my friends at Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum
are packed and moving to their new location at 1816 10th Street in Two
Rivers, Wisconsin on this very same day. While their move might not be
far geographically, it is a huge step out of the original factory; where
Hamilton started in 1880 and the museum has called home for the past
I was fortunate enough to fit in a
short weekend trip to Two Rivers one
last time to say farewell to Jim Moran (Museum Director), Stephanie
Carpenter (Assistant Director), as well as a delightful crew of
volunteers. This is a monumental move, and it is still in need of your
help. If you can spare a few bucks, please consider donating it to fund the cost of moving to and purchasing the new building.
