Christ Church Upper Library

Participants will have a chance to print their own 'Gutenberg Bible' page and to see the exhibition 'From Scriptoria to the Printing Press' open from 6 September to 29 November 2013 in the Upper Library at Christ Church. The one-pull press on display was built by Alan May for a programme commissioned by  BBC 4, 'The Machine That Made Us', presented by Stephen Fry and broadcast in 2008. The exhibition explores the relationship between manuscript and print and focuses on the importance of considering the two media not only as replacements one for another, but having a joint and interdependent existence during the fifteenth century.
