John Day is Dead!

This Day in History: July 23rd, 1583 John Day died. John Day was the “foremost English printer of the Elizabethan era. He had introduced Roman type to replace Gothic fonts. Because he had printed devotional books for the Reformation, and continued to print Protestant books after the accession of Mary Tudor, he was imprisoned and then exiled. When Protestants regained power under Elizabeth, he returned and printed John Foxe’s Acts and Monuments (Book of Martyrs).”  The image below is from my replica of my original 1732 Book of Martyrs that I make.
