Donate

Our warm thanks to the very generous donors who helped us raise more than £6000 in August and September 2018 through our crowdfunding campaign. 147 donors contributed to the project, bringing us much closer towards making the Thin Ice Press dream a reality.

We’re also very grateful to Ian Stuart, who not only donated to the crowdfunder, but gave us an original printing of Thomas Gent’s The Ancient and Modern History of the Famous City of York, allowing us to reunite the book with what is very possibly the press it was printed on, all the way back in 1730.

Although the crowdfunder has ended, the project continues to have high running costs. Further donations will help us to purchase materials and equipment, employ a member of staff, train undergraduate and postgraduate students, and open the printing studio up to a wide public. We also need funding to better understand and properly conserve Thomas Gent’s early eighteenth-century printing press — the basis of our reproduction wooden press.

Any donation will be enormously helpful and very much appreciated — and we will be happy to show our thanks with a small token of our appreciation, and a chance to explore the Thin Ice studio. If you would like to support this project, feel free to email us directly to find out how you can best help, or donate online through the University of York’s online giving page (please select ‘Other’ in the ‘Designation’ drop-down menu, and then type YuStart – Thin Ice Press into the box that appears).
