About ‹Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London›

The letterpress workshop is one of a number of print facilities at the college. It is open to all students but its primary users are those from the Graphic Communication Design programme. All students will have an induction here as part of a wider introduction to typography, and are then free to use the room for any project work they choose.
In terms of type, we have comprehensive ranges of Caslon, Baskerville, Bell and Univers; and a wide range of other interesting display types from both 19C & 20C.
The letterpress workshop is run by Helen Ingham.
