Australian pair keep book-making alive

The Doves Press was one of a number of private printing presses operating at the start of the 20th Century.

The press was established by TJ Cobden-Sanderson, with Emery Walker joining later as partner. The pair commissioned Edward Prince to punch cut the single-sized 16 pt text that was used in all the Doves Press publications.
