A stunning selection of ephemera from France is in exhibition in the Department of Typography and Graphic Communication.

The display, curated by Professor Michael Twyman, covers publicity items as well as documents of technical communication, such as invoices and forms, all printed between the seventeenth and mid-twentieth century.

The selection, which includes devotional cards, packaging, theatre posters and school maps, allows a close view of the changing typographic style through the years, and the uses of typography and colour in different printing methods such as colour lithography and letterpress.

Come have a look if you are near by. The exhibition will be on display until the 20 of May.
