Letterpress printing has been integral to Winterbourne’s activity for many years, and the site is increasingly becoming a hub for those interested in studying the history of letterpress printing and typography. Winterbourne is now home to a significant library of books relating to print history and culture.
The Typographic Library was created by a Professor of Typography at Birmingham City University, and contains books, periodicals and much more. In April 2023 the Library was relocated to Winterbourne, and now occupies a room on the top floor of the house.
Access to the Typographic Library is by appointment, and the books are for reference only. If you would like to make a research visit, please send an enquiry via our contact page and we will contact you.
