William Blake’s Auguries of Innocence: First Experiences with Letterpress


A five-year project in collaboration with students at Cambridge School of Art.

We have a substantial collection of wood and metal types at the School of Art, and between 2014 and 2018 our second-year graphic designers used these types to set and print couplets from William Blake’s ‘Auguries of Innocence’. For the majority of the students this was their first experience with letterpress. With all 132 lines of the poem presented across 66 editioned postcards, we are preparing for exhibition and publication in 2019/20.
