The Oxford Guild of Printers has existed for over twenty-five years, and membership includes some of Britain's leading Fine Press printers, a wide range of design, printing and publishing professionals - from students to the retired - and a growing number of Fine Press collectors and dealers. They come from as far afield as north of the Tay and west of the Atlantic.The meetings feature a speaker of some distinction on a printing or book-related topic or take the form of a visit to a noted library, Press or museum. There is generally time for a stimulating interchange of news and ideas between members before the talk - and afterwards an opportunity to meet the speaker.



Next talk: Miles Wigfield: Private Press Printing with some reference to T.E.Lawrence ~ Monday 3 November 2014

He will be reprising the 'paper' read to the T.E.Lawrence Society at their 13th biennial symposium in September in which he discourses not only on Lawrence's involvement with printing but the subsequent enthusiasm with which the private press movement mined the rich seam of Lawrentian ore.
