    The Cloister Press was founded by C W Hobson in 1921, part of the contemporary British movement to raise the standards of printing and publishing, and was noteworthy in that Stanley Morison was employed as the design supervisor. The Press was based in Heaton Mersey, Stockport, in the southern suburbs of Manchester. It undertook commercial and advertising as well as fine printing.

    This synopsis was issued in circa 1921/22. The text typeface is Monotype Plantin, with Frederic W. Goudy’s Hadriano for the titles.

    This is the back page of the sheet for Typographical Decoration & Illustration and is beautifully printed on Abbey Mills Greenfield paper. The illustration is for “good footing” and is by “HT”, who I reckon is Horace Taylor, the well known artist and illustrator who undertook poster commissions for London Underground amongst many others.
