Type Tuesday: Sound and Vision

St Bride Foundation, Tuesday 5 September 2023 in the Bridewell Hall 7-9.30pm

Eye magazine hosts another of its popular Type Tuesday evening event, this time exploring the world of design for music. We are looking forward to welcoming Hipgnosis co-founder Aubrey ‘Po’ Powell, whose studio designed album covers for Pink Floyd (Dark Side of the Moon), Paul McCartney, Led Zeppelin, 10cc, XTC, Peter Gabriel and many more. 

Po will be talking about music design and the new, full length documentary film Squaring the Circle, directed by Anton Corbjin, which tells the story of Hipgnosis and its designers, illustrators and photographers, including George Hardie and Jill Furmanovsky.

The evening will also feature a talk by designer Christopher Wilson (Oberphones), whose Eye 104 article ‘Heavy Rotation’ examines the Album Cover Albums series of books originally edited by Roger Dean and Hipgnosis co-founder Storm Thorgerson. Chris is known to Eye readers for articles such as ‘The look of Lolita’ and his book Richard Hollis Designs for the Whitechapel – acclaimed as ‘one of the best books on graphic design ever’ by Pentagram partner Michael Bierut.

There will be a bar and a stall at which you can buy bargain back issues of Eye plus the latest editionEye 104

Tickets £13, £11 members/concessions, £8.5 students

All proceeds go to support St Bride Foundation.

Ticket is non-refundable, however you are welcome to offer your ticket to another person. Please contact to change the name of your booking at least 7 days prior to the event date.

The next Type Tuesday events will be on 24 October (with Rick Poynor and Sara De Bondt) and 28 November with Joby Carter. 


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

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.
