Giles Balne

Giles Balne, Printer, 1777, was in a great position. He printed lottery tickets, then won the jackpot, then bought the Vauxhall Gardens, then spent the rest of his days printing amazing posters for them. This poster is 780 x 532mm and is one of seven kept at the Bodleian Library in the John Johnson collection in Oxford. Well worth a visit to see the real thing.

Hi, this is Dario Galvagno, editorial designer from Italy, Roma.

First: your blog is the one I appreciate most.
Secondo: I love your Studio Output.
Third: I have a blog on editorial design too. Would you mind to me put me on your links list (if you like it, of course). I'd do the same with you.

I design for several italian big corporations (like Eni, oil and energy worldwide corp, the minister of interiors, the Firefighters corp, many politicians)

I'm new with blogs so I'm not so skilled.

In case you give me a chance, my address is:
