St Bride Unveiled – St Bride Foundation

The St Bride Foundation was established in 1891 as the social and educational hub of printing and publishing on Fleet Street. These days it contains a library of artefacts and books, much of it relating to the history of print and graphic design. This exhibition in the Layton Gallery, St Bride Unveiled, showcases highlights from the collection which have not been seen together before.

201509_15Bridewell01The exhibition is free to visit and runs until the 25th of September. The Bridewell building, where the Foundation is based, is also home to a bar, a theatre and a library, as well as various other events.
