From Book History to Book Studies

Dear Colleagues,

        Last January I gave a talk to the American Printing History Association,
"From Book History to Book Studies."  It provoked a gratifying flurry of
discussion.  In a sentence, I proposed that all of us who work with books
-- book historians, librarians, publishers, printers, book artists,
typographers, papermakers, and folks experimenting with electronic texts --
should collaborate in setting up interdisciplinary academic programs in
Book Studies.  The APHA has graciously posted my remarks on their web site


        Feedback would be most welcome.  You can either post your responses on the
SHARP-L listserv or send them to me off-list at jerose@drew.edu.

Many thanks,

Jonathan Rose
