2005 Book History at A&M Workshop:
The fourth annual Book History at A&M Workshop will take place May 22-27,
2005, in the Cushing Memorial Library and Archives at Texas A&M University.
This five-day workshop provides an intensive, hands-on introduction to the
history of books and printing with an emphasis on hand press era printing
and its allied technologies--typecasting, papermaking, bookbinding,
illustration, and ink-making. Students will have the opportunity to cast
type in a hand mould, set lines of type, impose formes, make paper, produce
relief and intaglio illustrations and print on a replica common press. The
workshop is intended for librarians, archivists, students, teachers, book
collectors and private individuals who work in areas related to or who have
an interest in the subject. The workshop also includes a series of evening
lectures by scholars active in the field of book history. To register, find
