British Museum adds to collection

Fundraising for London Printworks Trust through has led to notes being added to the Department of Coins and Medals at the British Museum. The Curator of Modern Money, British Museum said,

"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 Cruitkshank 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."
