Exhibition design and curation: John Peters
John Frederick Herbert Peters (1917-1989) trained as an architect at St John’s College, Cambridge. A pilot during the Second World War, in peacetime Peters was employed at the Shenval Press, was the Regional Deputy Director of The Arts Council, part-owner of the Vine Press and a Fellow of the Society of Industrial Artists and Designers. He worked at Cambridge University Press from 1950 to 1964.
Berenice explored his work and legacy for her postgraduate dissertation in graphic design and typography. This resulted in an exhibition at the Cambridge University Press Museum from October 2017 to April 2018, delighting visitors from all over the world and educating design students who visit the Press.
