Type of All Eras & Nations at the Typographic Hub

UKType has been working with the Birmingham Institute of Art & Design at Birmingham City University and has just launched The Typographic Hub, an exciting new initiative for research into the history, theory and practice of typographic design.
Historically, Birmingham is England’s typographic heart, home to luminaries such as William Caslon first grandée of English type design; John Baskerville creator of the world’s most well-known and enduring typeface; and Leonard Jay a teacher par excellence, who revolutionised 20th century typographic education.
It is Birmingham’s illustrious lineage that makes BCU the natural home to the Hub.
