APHA ANNOUNCES 2003 FELLOWSHIP IN PRINTING HISTORY

The American Printing History Association (APHA) is delighted to announce a
new fellowship award for the study of printing history. For 2003, an award of
up to $2,000 is available for research in any area of the history of printing
in all its forms, including all the arts and technologies relevant to
printing, the book arts, and letter forms. Applications are especially
welcome from those working in the area of American printing history, but the
subject of research has no geographical or chronological limitations, and may
be national or regional in scope, biographical, analytical, technical, or
bibliographical in nature. Printing history-related study with a recognized
printer or book artist may also be supported. The fellowship can be used to
pay for travel, living, and other expenses.

APHA fellowships are open to individuals of any nationality. Applicants need
not be academics and an advanced degree is not required.

Applicants are asked to submit an application form, a curriculum vitae, and a
one-page proposal. Two confidential letters of recommendation specific to
this fellowship should be sent separately by the recommenders. Submission of
materials by electronic mail or fax is not acceptable.

The deadline for receipt of applications and letters of support is 1 December
2002. An announcement of the award will be made at the APHA annual meeting,
to take place in New York on 25 January 2003.

An application form is available at the APHA website,
www.printinghistory.org. To receive an application form by mail contact:
Fellowship Committee, APHA, P.O. Box 4922, Grand Central Station, New York,
N.Y. 10163.
