Letterpress Printing: Past, Present, Future is an AHRC-funded Research Network that explores the survival of historical printing equipment and how it is used today. The network brings together scholars, museum professionals, printers, and other interested people to explore the legacy of historical presses and type – what survives and where; its condition – as well as what it has to teach us, both about the textual and typographical cultures of the past, as well as those of today.
The project organizes workshops and events, details of which can be found on the events page.
