The British Museum add Counter Feat to their collection

We are pleased to announce that the Department of Coins and Medals of the British Museum have added Art Notes to their collection, which will very soon be available to view through the online catalogue, visible to anyone who searches for it on the British Museum website.

Here is what the Curator of Modern Money on behalf of the British Museum had to say:

“The Department of Coins and Medals strives to collect objects and ephemera which relate to all aspects of monetary exchange, and the notes produced by the London Printworks Trust neatly reflect the link between art and finance. In this interpretation they are historically reminiscent of the George Cruikshank engraved notes and Bank Restriction skit notes of the early 1800s. Like these earlier notes, the notes produced by London Printworks are not only artistically interesting, but they strike a resonant chord in a time of financial uncertainty, and we are pleased to be able to include them in our own collection.”

About London Printworks Trust

London Printworks Trust is the centre of excellence for textile print. Our passion has continued for twenty years since establishing ourselves as a charity to encourage professional artists, designers and emerging talent to learn, to share ideas, to produce new work and to fulfil their creative potential. Through our specialist hand printing equipment and workshop facilities we support and nurture creativity in people from the local community of Brixton, and across London. We are developing a new programme of residency places, courses, talks and new open access in response to the changes to funding. We appreciate and thank the support from our Board, Volunteers and Freelancers, without whom we would not have survived the changes to our funding. Continued support from The Leverhulme Trust and Lambeth also helps us to make a difference.
