THIS EVENT HAS EXPIRED

Dates and times

Thursday 20 June 2019
6:00PM - 7:00PM

Over the centuries, Glasgow's printing industry included book printers such as Blackie & Son, William Collins, and Bell & Bain, numerous newspapers and magazines. Specialised businesses produced tram tickets, cheques and bank notes. Lithographic printers produced illustrations and labels for mineral water and whisky bottles. Large-scale stationery manufacturers and small ‘jobbing’ print shops produced printed matter for business and personal use: invoices, letterheads, advertising posters, invitation cards, menus, forms, etc.

Helen Williams will talk about Glasgow’s printing industry highlighting the role of ‘everyday print’ and its relationship with writing.



Event takes place in the Moir Dyer Simpson, in The Mitchell Library on the ground floor.
