About this photo
This monument is called "Industry and Genius" and is a monument to John Baskerville, the famous typographer who lived from 1706 to 1775. It shows the title of his first book (Virgil), which was a reprint of Virgil's poems. The monument replicates the letter punches he used to make his type, and was created by David Patten, assisted by Michael P House in 1990. You can find this monument in Centenary Square in Birmingham, near to where Baskerville lived and worked.
