Using archival material in both Birmingham City University and Birmingham University, this lecture will document the life, work and teachings of Leonard Jay, head of the Birmingham School of Printing. Jay was a teacher par excellence who influenced and transformed the outlook of a whole generation of printers, making a significant contribution to British printing education in the first half of the twentieth century. He made the Birmingham School without equal in Britain, and exercised a world-wide influence on printing education policy.
