Abstract

Thomas James Cobden-Sanderson and Emery Walker, the man who inspired William Morris, formed Doves Press in 1901. The pages that were printed were to be uncluttered, without ornament or illustration. The 20 volumes produced under the Doves Press imprint reflected Cobden-Sanderson’s dictum that ‘the whole duty of typography…is to communicate, without loss by the way, the thought or image intended to be communicated by the author.’ Note the near perfect two-colour register amongst the impeccable printing.
