Typography Collection

The Typography Collection houses books created as works of art as well as mercantile items. The collection contains books from the more famous presses, such as Kelmscott, Vale, Ashendene, Doves, Gregynog, and Golden Cockerel, as well as productions of hobby printers. The Rare Books Division maintains a special catalog of these presses and of the names of typographers, designers and illustrators.
