Strange Form(e)s and the Typographical Sublime, November 9
Please join the Cary Collection as we host a talk by Ian Gadd, Professor in English Literature at Bath Spa University and President of the Society for the History of Authorship, Reading and Publishing (SHARP). Professor Gadd will examine extraordinary typographical layouts in early printing in his lecture, “Strange Form(e)s and the Typographical Sublime; or How Did They Do That?”
Professor Gadd has published articles on London history and the English book trade, and has co-edited a collection of essays on the important sixteenth-century London figure, John Stow; he has also co-edited two collections of essays on guilds in the early modern period. His PhD was on the history of the Stationers' Company, and he has written several articles on the Company's activities. He is currently co-editing an edition of a Company record, Liber A, with Peter Blayney.
