New stretch target

It safeguards and secures the physical archive for longer. The extra money would also allow us to give more access to students and people who can't afford to pay the current fees which all go to the storage and maintenance of this huge archive. 

HYMAG wants to make the archive and its contents accessible for all; this is all part of our plans for a digital platform, planned to launch in 2021. The extra money will give us a better runway to ensure this happens and make our dream of preserving the past, present, and future of print come true.

“When James Hyman was a scriptwriter at MTV Europe, in the 1990s, before the rise of the internet, there was a practical - as well as compulsive - reason he amassed an enormous collection of magazines, the foresight that this was going to be something else, more than a collector’s dream...it’s all about preserving and documenting the history of print.”– The New York Times.
