Illustrated with colourful and eclectic visual material, from panoramas to printed ephemera, adverts, penny magazines, early photography, and even crime reportage, The Printed and the Built consists of five in-depth thematic essays accompanied by 25 short pieces, each examining a particular printed form. Together, they illustrate how new genres communicated architecture to a mass audience, setting the stage for the modern architectural era.

Several of the authors will give brief talks followed by drinks and the opportunity to purchase your copy of the book.

Besides the editors Mari Hvattum and Anne Hultzsch, a number of contributors will give short talks. Talking about all things from buildings to prints, speakers include Stephen Bann (Bristol University), Richard Taws (UCL), Léa-Catherine Szacka (University of Manchester), Barbara Penner (UCL) and Adrian Forty (UCL).
