A panel of distinguished guests dig deep into the legendary archives of St Bride Library to select some fascinating artefacts from the history of graphic design and printing.
For this informal evening event our guest selectors have chosen items from St Bride that have a particular (and contemporary) resonance for them – like a ‘Desert Island Discs’ for graphic design. Each will show the audience their item and talk about it for five or ten minutes.
There will be plenty of time for questions, and for attendees to explore many facets of this fascinating London institution.
Other attractions include printing workshops, an Eye magazine stall (with selected back issues at bargain prices) and a bar.
This is the second ‘Eye curates’ session: our previous event, at the V&A, was well received and sold out quickly, so we recommend that you book asap on Eventbrite.
