      CALL FOR PAPERS (updated)

      'Picture This: The Art and Technique of Illustration"

      American Printing History Association Annual Conference
      University of Delaware, Newark, DE
      30 September ­ 1 October 2004

      For its 28th annual conference, to be held at the University of Delaware, the
      American Printing History Association (APHA) seeks papers which fit into the
      rubric of "The Art and Technique of Illustration." Illustration may be defined
      broadly as the printed reproduction of pictorial matter. Especially welcome
      are submissions which deal with the methods and techniques of illustration,
      such as woodcut, engraving, etching, lithography, photography, and digital
      imaging. We also encourage papers relating to publishing and printing of
      illustrations and to illustrators. There are no geographical or chronological
      limitations, and subjects of papers may be national or regional in scope,
      analytical, technical, or bibliographical in nature. We seek proposals that
      new methods of study or interpretation, that benefit from newly available
      primary sources, or that treat overlooked or forgotten persons, techniques, or
      design elements.

      Speakers need not be academics, and we welcome participation by illustrators,
      printers, artists, design professionals, and other practitioners in the book
      arts, as well as librarians, curators, independent scholars, and collectors.
      All papers are limited strictly to a reading time of twenty minutes.

      Proposals, which must include the title of the presentation, a brief
      description, and contact information, should be sent to:

      Mark Samuels Lasner
      Vice-President for Programs
      P.O. Box 4519,
      Grand Central Station
      New York, NY 10163
      e-mail programs@...

      Deadline for submission of proposals is 1 May 2004.

      The conference, hosted by the University of Delaware Library, will include an
      address by featured speaker, publisher and book historian David Godine
      (sponsored by the University of Delaware Library Associates); the opening
      of a major
      exhibition of the work of John De Pol; and a tour of the Raven Press, a
      recently-established letterpress at the University of Delaware. APHA has
      the conference to allow attendees to go to Oak Knoll Fest (Saturday and
      Sunday, 2 and 3 October, in nearby New Castle, DE), which will include panel
      discussions on illustration.

      Apart from its conference, APHA supports research and scholarship through its
      journal "Printing History," publications, an oral history project, and a
      fellowship program. The association, founded in 1974, encourages the
      of printing artifacts and source materials for printing history. It recognizes
      achievement in the field through 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 events
      are supplemented by the activities of regional chapters, which sponsor
      lectures, field trips, and other opportunities to meet fellow members.
