JOHN, the Schoolmaster printer of St Albans, established a printing press at St Albans Abbey
around 1479. For want of any other known surname, posterity bestowed on him the improbable soubriquet
INSOMUCH, that being the word with which, equally improbable, a number of his surviving texts begin.
His entry into local folklore was thus guaranteed.
THE INSOMUCH PRESS is a new venture which breathes life into his legend by the promotion of
works of merit by pupils and staff of St Albans School.
Please browse the site and read some of the excellent works submitted by staff, pupils and Old
Albanians. If you would like to submit your own work to be published by the Insomuch Press, please

Headmaster of St Albans School
