Baskerville

Regular price £20.00

John Baskerville (1706-1775), an English printer and type-founder, designed Baskerville in the mid-18th century. Having made his fortune from japanning (a form of black lacquerwork) he turned to printing and was responsible for some important developments which enabled a typeface like Baskerville with a sharp definition and thinner strokes to be reproduced.

The prints have been lovingly printed to perfection on our vintage Heidelberg cylinder press onto 300gsm Somerset Velvet 100% cotton paper.

Limited to 100 prints and individually numbered.

  • Size: A3 (450 x 320mm)
  • 300gsm Somerset Velvet
