Type Tuesday at St Bride Library

| 8 MARCH 2016

Paul will MC Eye’s next Type Tuesday, a quarterly series of informal events about typography, graphic design and visual culture. For this occasion, they will celebrate St Bride itself, and its amazing archive.


Participants include:

Nadine Chahine, UK Type Director and Legibility Expert, Monotype

Rathna Ramanathan, Royal College of Art

Sallie Morris, researcher on Eric Gill’s typefaces

David Pearson, graphic designer

Bob Richardson, acting librarian, St Bride

James Mosley, former librarian, St Bride

Holly Trant, former librarian, St Bride


Guests will choose items from the St Bride archive that have a particular resonance for them – it’s like a ‘Desert Island Discs’ for graphic design. Each contributor will show the audience their selection – which could be a book, a punch, a specimen, or a photo, etc. – with the aid of a visualiser, and talk about it for five minutes or so.


Later in the evening there will be general discussion of the past and present of St Bride, and some announcements about its future.
