Bristol Common Press

Bristol Common Press is a working historical print shop located at the University of Bristol, founded in 2021. It is dedicated to exploring the historical practices and global cultures of print. We are a research and teaching facility open to the whole university, and colleagues based in the Faculty of Arts conduct practice-led teaching and research using our historical equipment. You can find information on these pages about the origins of BCP.
