A two-day summer school exploring how books have been made, consumed and read following the invention of lithography in the early nineteenth century. The summer school combines talks by leading scholars and practitioners with a hands-on approach using our collections and archives.


Participants will see and practice lithographic printing from stone; they will gain understanding of some the ways in which lithography transformed the ways that books are made and read, in Latin and Arabic script, and books for children.  Our publishers’ archives and collections of book-related printed ephemera (book plates, trade cards, bookmarks, publishers’ promotional material) will inform talks and sessions to support understanding through looking and questioning. Talks with examples from our printing collection will show type and typography from the past informs what readers experience today


Speakers and practitioners include Prof Michael Twyman, Dr Rathna Ramanathan, Dr Liz West, Prof Paul Luna, Dr Cătălina Zlotea, Dr Borna Izadpanah, Mr Geoff Wyeth, Dr Matthew Chambers


The enrolment fee will include all refreshments (drinks and lunches) and materials.
