We’re chuffed to announce we’ve just become a Print Heritage Partner at the St. Bride Foundation near Fleet Street. Not only can St. Bride’s claim the slightly bizarre honour of housing the oldest public swimming pool in London (!), but it’s also a treasure-trove of all things print. From its origins as a technical library and printing school, it has amassed a unique collection of typographical, design and printing literature, including over 55,000 books, 200 special collections and 100,000 print-related artefacts, stretching all the way back to Caxton.
Unfortunately austerity bites us all, and so St. Brides has reached out to the printing industry through its Print Heritage Partnership to help it maintain the facility and fund ongoing research into the collection – and Webmart is delighted to be in a position to help. For other potential partners; it also gives you a great print and agency-friendly place in the centre of London for meetings and events.
