Hi, thanks for visiting the site!

 

Ultrabold, the journal of St Bride Library, which I design and edit, returned in the autumn of 2020 after a break of four years.
The first of two issues to celebrate the Library’s 125th anniversary is now out, and to mark this special occasion, is available with four cover options, the designs of which are split between issues 20 and 21: half now, half later…

The covers have been created by the talents of Rui Abreu, Luke Bird, Vaibhav Singh and Carol Kemp.

If you’d like to find out more about the journal, and maybe even get a copy,

In Search of Emery Walker

THE OXFORD GUILD OF PRINTERS

This was a talk based on my research and writing of Emery Walker: Arts, Crafts and a World in Motion, given

via Zoom.

Saturday, 19 June 2021   

 

Emery Walker, TYPOGRAPHER

THE WILLIAM MORRIS SOCIETY

A look at Walker’s typographic work with the Kelmscott Doves and Ashendene presses, and others. The talk is part of the William Morris Society’s programme to celebrate 125 years since the publication of the Kelmscott Chaucer.

A version of the talk will be included in the next issue of The Journal of William Morris Studies.

SLOWLY, AND THEN ROUND AGAIN

HARRY RANSOM CENTER

I contributed an essay to the Harry Ransom Center’s online forum ‘What is Research?’, based on my experiences researching the Center’s Emery Walker archive.
