Baskerville in objects

Edited by Caroline Archer-Parré and Malcolm Dick, and published by Liverpool University Press, this is the first book to be published on the Birmingham printer for over forty years. It places Baskerville within his local, national and global context as a figure of the eighteenth-century Enlightenment.

This will be an informal event to launch the book and will include a talk by Susan Whyman, podcast and radio boradcast.  All are welcome to join us and bring festive nibbles and refreshments, including wine or soft drinks, if you wish.
