The Centre for Printing History and Culture
Print Matters: Past, Present and Future
The Centre for Printing History and Culture is a joint initiative between Birmingham City University and the University of Birmingham and consists of researchers, heritage professionals and librarians. It seeks to encourage research into all aspects and periods of printing history and culture, as well as education and training into the art and practice of printing. Please see our member pages for more information.
