Event description

Description

Participants get an introduction to fine press books in the Elsted’s private library before heading out to the pressroom for an introduction to hand-setting and printing. Here’s an opportunity to print a broadsheet, yours to take home, on an 1850 Albion handpress under the guidance of Crispin and Jan.

About Barbarian Press.

We founded Barbarian Press in Boughton Monchelsea, Kent, in 1977, having conceived a love for beautifully printed books and a determination to see what we could do ourselves in that line. Barbarian Press remains an entirely letterpress operation. Our aims have not substantially altered since we founded the press: to publish poetry, translations, classics, and belles lettres in a style which both glorifies the text and reveals it to the reader with a minimum of interference. To these we have added an important interest in wood engraving, which began in 1984 with our commissioning Edwina Ellis to illustrate A Christmas Carol, or, The Miser’s Warning, a pirated play based on Dickens’ story and first produced in 1844.Over the years Barbarian Press has also acquired a reputation as a teaching press, reflecting our determination to help keep the crafts of hand setting and printing alive and to pass them on.
