"New Work in Printing History"

American Printing History Association
27th Annual Conference
24-26 October 2003
The Grolier Club, New York

The American Printing History Association's 27th conference focuses on recent
and innovative research in printing history and the book art--work that makes
use of new methods of study or interpretation, that benefits from newly
available primary sources, and that treats overlooked or forgotten persons,
techniques, or design elements. Bringing together scholars, printers,
designers, and bibliographers, the series of lectures and visits will be
appropriately, by The Grolier Club, America's oldest bibliophile society.

An exciting schedule of events is planned.

Early birds may join us Friday afternoon for a session of papers on the
intersections between printing history and bibliography. The conference
Friday evening with a keynote address on "Facing the Visible and Unfolded Book
of the Future: New Frontiers in Printing History" by David Pankow, editor of
"Printing History" and Curator of the Cary Graphic Arts Collection, Rochester
Institute of Technology. Saturday features a day of talks and concludes with a
reception and exhibition viewing at the Center for Book Arts. Those who stay
through Sunday are invited to an exclusive tour of the De Vinne Building, led
by De Vinne biographer Irene Tichenor, followed by optional brunch in the
buildingâ¬"s Serafina Restaurant.

The American Printing History Association was founded in 1974 to further the
study of printing history and related arts and skills, including calligraphy,
typefounding, typography, papermaking, bookbinding, illustration, and
publishing. APHA supports the preservation of printing artifacts and source
and encourages research and scholarship through its annual conference; its
journal, "Printing History"; a quarterly "Newsletter"; occasional special
publications; an oral history project; and a recently-inaugurated
fellowship program.
the Association recognizes achievement in the field through annual Individual
and Institutional Awards and by means of the J. Ben Lieberman Lecture given
each year at a different institution by a distinguished figure in printing
history or the book arts. These national events are supplemented by the
of regional chapters, which sponsor lectures, field trips, and other
opportunities to meet fellow members.
