We are collecting audio and video footage of people who trained and worked in traditional printing. Oral historian, Mary Ingoldby, has recorded our first batch of interviews.

We are also recording the stories of traditional print workers who call into our base in Hay-on-Wye. We plan to launch this audio and video archive in 2019. Listen to them as we upload them here, on our Soundcloud playlist:

Andy, who did a printing apprenticeship as a teenager and has worked around the globe in the printing industry. He called into The Story of Books in Hay-on-Wye and his story is in going into the archive.
