Registered Charity No. 1099648
The Edward Johnston Foundation is a registered arts charity dedicated to the promotion of a public awareness of calligraphy, not only as an art form in its own right but also as the seed and reference point for many other lettering applications including modern typeface design. These aims are backed with four objectives:
The Foundation is based at Studio 4, Turner Dumbrell Workshops, Ditchling, East Sussex, the birthplace of the twentieth-century calligraphic renaissance in Britain. The collection of contemporary work comprises some 10,000 individual items with an acquisitions policy for rapid expansion to represent many related disciplines. The library currently stands at over 2000 volumes.
In 1999, the Foundation, in association with Ditchling Museum, was awarded Arts Council funding worth £102,000 for a three-year series of exhibitions and events under the title Lettering Today and Tomorrow.
