Broadside "This is a Printing Office"

Surrey: Monotype Corporation, (c. 1978). This poster presents Warde's powerful statement, in which she describes the printing office as an "Armory of fearless truth against whispering rumor," in Latin and sixteen other Western languages, from English and Icelandic to Turkish and Croatian. The original broadside was done in 1932 in order to showcase Eric Gill's Perpetua type, and was adopted as a manifesto by printers across the globe. Measures approximately 24 3/4 by 19 3/4 inches. One corner creased, a couple of faint spots to the reverse, else fine. Item #25536
