Blists Hill Museum, Ironbridge

We took ourselves off to Blists Hill Victorian Museum for a few hours to discover traditional methods of print and typography. To us typophiles the art of typography is crucial in creating great design. The age-old method of letter pressing is now only visible in places like Blists Hill Victorian Museum in Ironbridge.

We took our camera and snapped a few shots of our favourite examples of typography and print from the Victorian era. Posters advertising all manner of services and brands, labels on old medicine jars, sign writing on the sides of horse carts. It’s accurate to say we were like kids in a sweet shop. Luckily for us there was a Victorian style sweet shop there too.
