Did you know...?

Did you know that italic type was invented by the Italian printer and publisher, Aldus Manutius? It was first used in 1501 in an edition written by the Roman poet, Virgil. The word itself, italic, means something that relates to Italy, its people or its culture.

"We’ve had rave reviews from all the staff who have worked with Shirley. It’s so easy to get caught up in the world of jargon and public sector gobbledygook and too often we forget about the people on the receiving end of what we’re writing. Shirley’s really helped us to think more about what we write and the tone we use."
