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.

A great relief — St Bride Library will re-open once a month from 06 April.
There are some conditions: including the request that you are booked in a week in advance, have a list of the things you want to refer to, and pay a fee to retrieve books; but a great step in the right direction.
