New Ultrabold

Have a look at this! It's the new Ultrabold magazine, which is the Journal of the St Bride Library - I know a lot of people have heard of St Brides but don't really know much about it -see

Anyway, we at Fenner Paper have supported this publication for the last three years (by supplying discounted material) and the print is sponsored by Principal Colour. The publication is designed by Simon Loxley and is published by the Friends of St Brides.

In this issue, there is an article about the Hand and Eye press (letterpress printer) based in London and a very interesting article about Rian Hughes' hand drawn magazine and comic lettering.

I am also very fortunate that design duo Debbie Osborne and Andrew Ross (who many of you will know) very kindly produce the Fenner advert which appears on the inside back cover. This has involved trawling the St Bride's library for suitable and diverse "F" (for Fenner) letterforms. Thank you to Andrew and Debbie for your time and generosity.

Below is a picture taken at St Brides, where Andrew Ross is "giving it some welly" on a Columbian press - trying desperately to make an impression!

If you want your own copy, simply join the Friends of St Brides and you'll get one free. Alternatively you could e-mail me and I may be able to find a file copy...
