"New Work in Printing History"

American Printing History Association Annual Conference

The Grolier Club, New York, N.Y.
24-25 October 2003

For its 27th annual conference, to be held at The Grolier Club in New York
24-25 October 2003, the American Printing History Association (APHA) seeks
papers which fit into the rubric of "new work in printing history." Printing
history is broadly defined as the history of printing in all its forms,
including all the arts and technologies relevant to printing, the book arts,
and letterforms-typography, typefounding, presses and presswork, papermaking,
calligraphy, bookbinding, illustration, publishing, and the literature of
printing. Submissions are especially wanted from those working in the area of
American printing history, but the subjects of papers have no geographical or
chronological limitations, and may be national or regional in scope,
biographical, analytical, technical, or bibliographical in nature. We seek in
particular proposals that use new methods of study or interpretation, that
benefit from newly available primary sources, or that treat overlooked or
forgotten persons, techniques, or design elements.

Speakers need not be academics, and we welcome participation by printers,
book artists, design professionals, librarians, curators, independent
scholars, and collectors. All papers are limited to a reading time of twenty

Proposals (not to exceed the equivalent of one page, typewritten
double-spaced) should be sent with contact information to:
