Begin your journey outside St Paul’s station and follow the trail marked on the map. As you come to each stop, tap the screen to hear a printer associated with that location tell their story. Discover how Wynkyn de Worde established his bookshop in St Paul’s churchyard, how Elizabeth Mallet published Britain’s first daily newspaper in 1702, and how Beatrice Warde took the Monotype Corporation by storm during the 1920s.
Combining history, drama and mobile technology, Journeys Through Print invites you to step back in time as you explore these London streets. The stories you’ll hear blend the printers’ own words with modern reimaginings of these figures, together revealing how they made London into one of the world’s great centres of print.
