The partners lived on the same riverside terrace, a brief stroll from their workplaces, and holidayed in adjoining country cottages.

The Doves Type was commissioned by Thomas Cobden-Sanderson as a bespoke typeface for the Doves Press, the London printing company he co-founded with Emery Walker in 1900. A modern take on a Venetian serif, it took two years to create and was used in all of the Press’s publications, including books of verse by Shakespeare and Milton and the Doves Bible, which featured drop caps by Edward Johnston.
Marianne Tidcombe reveals the intriguing story of the cutting of the famous Dove's Type, the printing of Paradise Lost, Paradise Regain'd, and The English Bible. Also included is the saga of Cobden-Sanderson's short and stormy partnership with Emery Walker.
