About the Doves Press

The Doves Press was founded in 1890 by  Thomas James Cobden-Sanderson and Emery Walker in Hammersmith, a district of London. Walker is best known for creating the Doves type, which the press used in their printing. The Doves Press closed in 1916. Cobden-Sanderson famously threw the Doves type into the River Thames.
