The British Library Lecture: Making Your Mark

Hay Festival 2019, 

The curator introduces the British Library’s blockbuster spring exhibition in this illustrated lecture. He explores the remarkable evolution of writing, from ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs carved in stone and early printed text such as William Caxton’s edition of The Canterbury Tales to the art of note-taking by some of history’s greatest minds, and onwards to the digital communication tools we use today. Marvel at centuries of human innovation as writing enabled progress and opened doors to expression and art.
