Studio B is a letterpress printing workshop established in 2004, founded by Carl Middleton. It aims to celebrate and maintain the heritage of letterpress printing through use. The contents of the workshop have been gathered together over three decades of collecting and culminate in one of the largest collections of antique wood type in Somerset.

We are part of a wider fraternity of letterpress printers who value the process enough to privately invest in it and to promote its qualities wherever possible. A process where we all hope to protect and conserve a key component in the evolution of media and communication.

At Studio B we compose, set, ink and print with movable type - making modern graphic treatments using traditional printing processes.

Our work is held in both public and private collections across the globe and currently on display in Ireland - National Print Museum (Dublin), in the United States at Hamilton Type Museum (Wisconsin) and in the permanent collection in London at the Victoria & Albert Museum.
