      "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,
      curators,
      designers, and bibliographers, the series of lectures and visits will be
      hosted,
      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
      continues
      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.

      Conference fee:
      $75 for APHA members
      $25 for APHA student members
      $90 for non-members

      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
      materials
      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
      activities
      of regional chapters, which sponsor lectures, field trips, and other
      opportunities to meet fellow members.
