Caroline Archer-Parré is Professor of Typography, Co-director of the Centre for Printing History & Culture at Birmingham City University/University of Birmingham, and Chair of the Baskerville Society. With particular interest in typographic history from the eighteenth to twentieth centuries, Caroline has published widely and is a regular contributor to both the trade and academic press.

More widely, Caroline’s goal is to stimulate, support, and disseminate knowledge of printing history and culture. She is interested in all aspects of the history of printing, including the machinery and equipment, the industry and its personnel, printing processes, and the design of printed products such as books, newspapers, journals, and ephemera. She is also concerned with the impact that print has in the wider world, and therefore also covers the social, cultural, industrial, and economic aspect of print culture.
