More of the history and prehistory of the John Bull kits appears at British Letterpress in 100 Objects. Glyn Jones, Peter Lawley, Ian Marshall, Stephen Peel Middle Row Females L to R - Michele Laviers, Anne Davies, Carol Winter, Susan Collins, Kathy Cook, Anne Turtle, Jennifer Went Front Row L to R Chris Farmer, Susan Ayling, RR Davies, Miss J. Nowadays there is a core aim running throughout the organisation, which is to elevate the heritage of printing, whilst inspiring the future of design.

You then inked-up the stamp from a black or red sponge and hey-presto, you could print letterpress-style!
