The Typographic Library

The library comprises more the 4,000 items of typographic interest including reference books, journals and periodicals, trade literature, items of printed ephemera and collections of special interest. Free to the public. They explain: The Typographic Hub is part of the Birmingham Institute of Art&Design at Birmingham City University; the Hub works to promote the history, theory and practice of typographic design. Historically, the Midlands are England's typographic heart. William Caslon (1692-1766) the first grandée of English type design, was born in Cradley, whilst Birmingham was home to John Baskerville (1706-1775), creator of the world's most well-known and enduring typeface; and Leonard Jay, a teacher par excellence revolutionised 20th century British typographic education whilst Head of the Birmingham School of Printing (1925-1953). The Typographic Hub works to preserve this great heritage.
