Tickets: £3 – £12

We are honoured to be joined by Nicolas Barker to celebrate the life and work of Beatrice Warde.

Nicolas first met Beatrice in the late 1940s. He describes her as force of nature, and an enthusiast for printing and printers of all sorts. She wrote several works on the subject, especially supporting Stanley Morison. She gave many lectures, and prizes at book-trade functions. She was the best ever salesperson for Monotype, its products and users; and she was known, indeed a by-word, throughout the world of printing and design. According to Nicolas, her book, ‘The Crystal Goblet’ is the best guide to typographic design ever written. Join us for an intimate evening to celebrate the legacy of this indomitable woman.
