Interview with St Bride foundation’s Bob Richardson about the library’s collection of ancient books (including some really old tiny ones written by hand in Middle English)

Harry Mottram reports

A brief talk by Bob Richardson of the St Bride Foundation just off Fleet Street in London about the library’s collection of books including some very ancient ones. Filmed in 2015 by Harry Mottram.

Established in 1891 with a clear social and cultural purpose, St Bride Foundation is one of London’s hidden gems.

Housed in a beautiful Grade II listed Victorian building, St Bride Foundation was originally set up to serve the burgeoning print and publishing trade of nearby Fleet Street, and is now finding a new contemporary audience of designers, printmakers and typographers who come to enjoy a regular programme of design events and workshops.
