The 2017 British Library Lab Awards

by - 16:36

In October 2017, I made my way to the British Library, London, to receive the British Library Lab Award for a Commercial Product. This award is given each year to a product which uses the library's digital resources, and in turn helps expose these resources to a greater audience. As many readers of this blog are aware, much of the artwork in Movable Type uses initial capital woodcuts, as taken from the British Library Digital Archives.

Receiving the award and giving a talk about the game's production to a packed auditorium, was an absolute delight - I've been a library nerd all my life, so to be on stage in the British Library was both surreal and wonderful!
