[BKARTS] 2006 APHA Awards for Distinguished Achievement in Printing History

The American Printing History Association is pleased to announce the winners of its 2006 Individual and Institutional Awards for distinguished achievement in printing history.

*Elizabeth M. Harris*, former Curator of Graphic Arts in the National Museum of American History, Smithsonian Institution, is the 2006 Individual Laureate. Her varied publications record includes articles on 19th-century printing processes--compound plate printing, glyphography, nature printing, and map printing, to name just a few--and printing presses, such as /The Common Press/ (with Clinton Sisson, 1978), and /Personal Impressions: The Small Printing Press in Nineteenth-Century America/ (2004). Harris's innovative Smithsonian exhibitions on such topics as pochoir, printing for the blind, and American wood type are highlights of her distinguished career as an educator.

The *John Carter Brown Library*, a center for advanced research in history and the humanities at Brown University, is the 2006 Institutional Laureate. For over a century the "JCB" has been a leader in collecting, preserving, and promoting the printing history of the colonial Americas, North and South. Not content simply to build the world's finest collection of primary printed sources pertaining to the discovery, exploration, and history of the colonial Americas, the JCB and its staff have authored many essential bibliographies and works on American printing history. In support of scholarship, the JCB's fellowship, exhibition, and publication programs are models of their kind.

The awards will be presented during the Annual Meeting of the American Printing History Association, to be held Saturday, January 28, 2006, in the Trustees Room (2nd floor), New York Public Library, Fifth Avenue at 42nd Street, New York City. A reception will follow. The meeting and reception are free and open to the public.
