Martin Andrews is a graphic designer, typographer, specialist in printing history and a lecturer at the University of Reading.  He is a keen collector of Rena Gardiner’s books and co-authored the recent book on the life and work of Rena Gardiner, illustrated with some 200 images.
The Dorset History Centre holds the Rena Gardiner archive including original prints and drawings some of which will be on display for the event.
