Members may have learned that Joe Pearson, long-time Society member, lost a large part of his collection of Penguins and much of the back stock of ‘Design for Today’ publications, as well as family history photographs, in a disastrous fire at a storage warehouse in Croydon on 31 December. Numerous members of the PCS and many others have expressed their sympathy with Joe and Karen, and more information is available here https://www.instagram.com/designfortoday/
But Joe is determined that Design for Today will rise from the ashes, starting with the unpublished Puffin Picture book ‘White Horses' which his imprint is publishing in co-operation with the Society. He hopes that it will be ready in the spring. Design for Today will be taking orders before then, but members who have renewed their subscriptions for 2019 need do nothing, and should receive their copies in the June mailing as planned.
