Will Holder (born 1969 in Hatfield, Hertfordshire) is an English typographer based in Brussels. Holder explores the organisation of language around artworks through printed matter, live readings and dialogues with other artists. He is the editor of F.R.DAVID, a journal concerned with reading and writing in the arts.

In May 2009, Holder co-curated TalkShow (with Richard Birkett) at the ICA, London.[1] Together with Alex Waterman, he edited and typeset operatic scores for Yes, But Is It Edible?, the music of Robert Ashley, for two or more voices.[2]

During 2015–2016, Holder exhibited in the touring British Art Show 8.[3] In 2015 he received a Paul Hamlyn Award for Artists.[4]
