Type Tuesday: Activists in Ink
Type Tuesday: Activists in Ink
St Bride Foundation, Tuesday 8 March 2022 in the Bridewell Hall 7-9.30pm
Please come to our first in-person Type Tuesday since March 2020. Joining us will be three special guests: reportage illustrator Lucinda Rogers; graphic designer Greg Bunbury; and poet, activist and letterpress artist Dennis Gould.
We will begin the evening with presentation from Lucinda Rogers on her reportage drawings from COP26 in Glasgow. She recently collated her illustrative observations into Around the edge of COP26, a publication documenting the activists, delegates, panels, speeches, protests, as well as the general mood throughout and following the summit. Lucinda will also be joined by Kevin Wilson, editorial creative director at Financial Times, to discuss the use of reportage illustration in newspapers
After Lucinda, we will feature a presentation by graphic designer Greg Bunbury, who founded the Black Outdoor Art project in 2020 and 2021 (in partnership with outdoor agency Brotherhood Media), which uses donated billboard space as a platform for other Black British designers. Greg will also talk about his type designs (including the all-caps display typefaces Empire Windrush and Bradford ’81) and his work for clients in publishing, music and hospitality.
We will also be screening a short documentary entitled The Last Cuckoo: Dennis Gould, by British filmmaker and designer Mark Chaudoir. This is an intimate portrait of poet and printmaker Dennis Gould, capturing his love for activism, letterpress, wood type, cycling, football and life in general – it’s a highly enjoyable film, and Mark and Dennis will be on hand to chat about it.
Copies of Around the edge of COP26 and a selection of Dennis Gould’s letterpress works – plus current and bargain back issues of Eye – will be available for sale in the Farringdon Room next to Bridewell Hall. There will also be a small bar where you can buy beers, wines and soft drinks.

Established in 1891 with a clear social and cultural purpose, St Bride Foundation is one of London’s hidden gems.
Housed in a beautiful Grade II listed Victorian building, St Bride Foundation was originally set up to serve the burgeoning print and publishing trade of nearby Fleet Street, and is now finding a new contemporary audience of designers, printmakers and typographers who come to enjoy a regular programme of design events and workshops.
Many thousands of books, printing-related periodicals and physical objects are at the heart of St Bride Library. Volumes on the history of printing, typography, newspaper design and paper-making jostle for space alongside one of the world’s largest and most significant collections of type specimens. The printed, written, carved and cast word may be found at St Bride in its myriad forms. Architectural lettering and examples of applied typography in many media, together with substantial collections of steel punches and casting matrices for metal types are also held in this eclectic collection. The Reading Room is open to visitors twice a month and on other days by appointment. Although we operate on a cost-neutral basis, it is necessary to charge for some of our services. Details are available by emailing the library team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
St Bride retains many of its original features, including the baths, laundry, printing rooms and library. As part of the Foundation’s original mission to provide for the community, many of the building’s unique and characterful spaces are available to hire whether for meetings, weddings or classes.
St Bride also houses the popular Bridewell Theatre, and Bridewell Bar (once the laundry), and hosts a year-round programme of plays, comedy, music and exhibitions.
With some 65,000 visitors a year St Bride Foundation is a major London hub for the creative arts in London. We look forward to welcoming you soon.
