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.



Visit to Madresfield Court ~ Wednesday 28th May

The home of the Lygon family and inspiration for Evelyn Waugh's Brideshead Revisited Madresfield boasts a fine library and a fascinating history. Visits are by appointment only and the Guild has booked in advance 30 places for 2.30pm. As in previous years it is hoped to arrange a lunch in a nearby hostelry (details to follow). There is a charge of £12 per head.

Please advise the Chairman if you wish to attend as soon as possible. We will have to pay for all the places booked one month in advance: if all 30 slots are not filled before that date the number will be reduced to that required. (It may be possible to increase this number should demand require it.) Please book as soon as possible.
