Listen to stories of strange and magical creatures.

Storyteller and bookbinder: Linda Cotterill

* Printer's apprentices would inevitably have parts of their skin stained black by the ink used in printing. As black was associated with the 'black arts', the apprentices came to be called devils and so printer's devils.
This is a completely new type of event to be held at the Foundation and aims to introduce a wider audience to printing, the history of printing and all the other fascinating aspect of the Foundation’s work.
