William Bulmer (1757–1830)
Poems by Goldsmith and Parnell.
Shakespeare Printing Office
Like Baskerville before him, and whose work he builds upon, William Bulmer sought to improve the art of printing through the use of exceptionally beautiful and modern types, fine materials, and careful presswork. Bulmer’s printing and Martin’s types are combined here with wood engravings by Bewick and paper handmade by Whatman in the production of a volume that does indeed “raise the Art of Printing.” The types used in this book would be re-cut by the British Monotype Corporation and later issued in digital form.
