APHA 2013 conference care of Kitty Maryatt
- Registration is now open for the 38th Annual APHA Conference, Seeing Color/Printing Color on October 18-20, 2013 at the Grolier Club in New York. You may register online at www.printinghistory.org.
Color in printing has a rich and complex history. The American Printing History Association's 38th annual conference, Seeing Color/Printing Color, will examine the history of color and color printing. Since the invention of printing from movable type, printers have sought to perfect technologies that capture and reproduce the visible world. Reflecting on this historic legacy and its rapidly evolving future, the conference will present papers on topics ranging from color in early German graphic art to the art and technology of modern letterpress. The keynote speaker is Dr. Sarah Lowengard, who will present "Why Color? On the Uses, (Misuses) and Meanings of Color in Printing."
Full details about the conference, including the program and speakers, recommended hotels, and optional tours, can be found on the conference pages at www.printinghistory.org. Please note that to register for the optional tours on Friday and Sunday, you should send an email with your request to aphaconference2013@.... The tours are free, but they are limited to 20 participants. You will receive a response upon receipt of your request.
There is an early bird registration deadline of September 15, after which the conference fees will go up. We recommend that you register early, since the Grolier Club may not be able to accommodate all of the many participants we anticipate will want to attend.
