ISTC London – Group Visit to St Bride Unveiled Exhibition

The St Bride Foundation, just off Fleet Street was established in 1891 as the social and educational hub of the printing and publishing industries

Its unparalleled library of artefacts and books now plays an important role in illustrating the history of print and graphic design, as well as the history of our culture in general. This collection has not been on public view in the same room before.

The St Bride Unveiled exhibition offers an exclusive opportunity to see highlights from their collection, ranging from the Book of the Dead to the typography of 20th Century signage, and should be fascinating for anyone with an interest in the history and development of the printed word.

Members of the ISTC London Group are planning a group visit to this exhibition, on Thursday 13th August, 2015. We will of course stop for a drink afterwards!

Please book a free ticket to reserve your place.

Please note the visit is self-directed. We will meet at the entrance to the St Bride Foundation at 19:00.

TCUK 2015

The Technical Communication UK (TCUK) conference for 2015 will be in Scotland for the very first time. TCUK 2015 takes place on 29th and 30th September and 1st October, and is at the Beardmore Hotel and Conference Centre, at Dalmuir in Clydebank, just outside Glasgow.

TCUK is the ISTC’s annual conference for everyone involved in writing, editing, illustrating, delivering and publishing technical information.

This year’s special focus is Breaking the Boundaries of Technical Communication.

One of the exciting aspects of technical communication is its changing nature. Assumptions are being challenged, boundaries are being broken, as technical communicators meet the needs of users. You’ll be hearing from others about their experience of, and thoughts on, moving beyond the technical communication that we know today.
