      Although this announcement isn't directly related to the subject of
      experimental letterpress printing, I think it might be of interest to the
      many list members with an historical bent (a bent which one sees here quite
      often demonstrated). The competition is specifically written to encourage
      non-Academic researchers, printers, and books artist, so long as the
      proposal has a historical thrust. Please respond with any questions to the
      e-mail address below. -Paul


      The American Printing History Association (APHA) is delighted to announce a
      2004 fellowship award for the study of printing history. 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 resume, 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 2003. An announcement of the award will be made at the APHA annual
      meeting, to take place in New York on 24 January 2004.

      An application form is available at the APHA website,
      www.printinghistory.org. To receive an application form by mail contact
