Spent a very enjoyable few hours on Saturday at the British Printing Society Fair… over 40 stalls of letterpress and printing paraphernalia. A very generous goody bag was given on arrival containing all manner of printed matter. Picked up a couple of bargains - two vintage boxes of envelopes (£2!) and an amazing book called ‘A Handbook of Type and Illustration’ (by John Lewis, 1956) which includes beautiful reproductions of work by Edward Bawden, Edward Ardizzone and George Chapman. The highlight was a talk by Martin Andrews from the University of Reading who spoke about the life and work of Robert Gibbings. Totally fascinating, and a real privilege to see print proofs of collaborations with Eric Gill from the Golden Cockerel Press handed round.
