About the author

Book historian, interested in the material form and impact of texts – how they came to be and where they have gone. I work on handpress-period print produced in Britain in particular, but have published on later American print culture and am getting to know Continental European print better. Interests include ballads, broadsides, chapbooks, typefaces, woodblocks, diagrams, copyright history, orality/literacy, manuscript/print, and the digital.  

I am currently Digital Humanities Research Fellow for the Seebibyte project in the Department of Engineering Sciences at the University of Oxford.
