Summer Jaunt ~ Wednesday 25th May

Summer Jaunt to Department of Typography and Graphic Communication, Reading University, Wednesday 25th May

Martin Andrews has kindly agreed to lead a group into this exciting seat of learning. We may well get our hands on the Alan May built wooden press built for Stephen Fry’s programme on Gutenberg; we will certainly be shown treasures from their archives. The department has been instrumental in the formative years of many of the great and good in the world of typography and design; indeed several Guild members started their professional lives there.

The visit will be just for the afternoon, starting at 2 p.m. Numbers will be limited. (First come, first served.) Apply directly to me - Miles Wigfield - (and perhaps say if you’d like to meet for lunch beforehand. If there is sufficient demand for that aspect I will arrange a venue).

O.G.P.Wayzgoose Saturday 22nd October

O.G.P. Wayzgoose wil be held on Saturday 22nd October in the Dora Cohen Hall on the Wheatley Campus of Oxford Brookes University. 40 tables of private presses, type and printing equipment, paper suppliers &c.
