St Bride Unveiled

unveiled front

An exhibition showcasing the highlights of the St Bride Foundation collection.

22 July – 25 September // Layton Room // Free entry

Over its 124 year history, St Bride Foundation has acquired an unparalleled library of artefacts and books, which now plays an important role in illustrating the history of print and graphic design, as well as the history of our culture in general.

This summer we are offering an exclusive opportunity to see the highlights of this collection, with items ranging from the Book of the Dead to the typography of 20th Century road signs. The exhibition will run from 22 July until 25 September. Many of the items have not been on public display in the same room before.

Here are a few glimpses of what will be on show:

The exhibition will also coincide with a pop up book shop, as well as earlier opening times in the bar, allowing you to make the most of your time at this historic venue.

Keep your eyes on our Twitter, Instagram and Facebook feeds over the next two weeks for some more previews of what you will be seeing at St Bride Unveiled this summer.
