St Bride Event: Douglas Downing on The Dalziel Brothers

A note from St Bride on an upcom­ing event.

I am email­ing on behalf of the St Bride Foun­da­tion where I curate their events pro­gramme as I want­ed to let you know about a talk we have com­ing up that may be of inter­est to you and your fel­low mem­bers.

It is being held on Fri­day 24 Novem­ber at 7pm and is being giv­en by Dou­glas Down­ing on The Dalziel Broth­ers. Dou­glas is a descen­dent of theirs so it will be a very rich and detailed talk about his research into the fam­i­ly and their work through­out the 60 years that they ran the Cam­den Press. Most notably, they cut the engrav­ings for Edward Lear’s Book of Non­sense and Lewis Carrol’s Alice in Won­der­land and Through the Look­ing Glass and worked with many well known artists includ­ing Mil­lais, Whistler and Roset­ti.

We are hop­ing to also print a keep­sake for the evening in our print room too and will con­firm this in the next month all being well.
