arts and technologies relevant to printing, the book arts, and letter

book artist may also be supported. The fellowship can be used to pay
for travel, living, and other expenses.
The deadline for receipt of applications and letters of support is

the APHA annual meeting, to take place in New York on Saturday, 28
Previous APHA Fellowship recipients have included Lance Hidy for work

African-American printer, publisher, editor and poet William Stanley
Braithwaite in 2004, and John A. Lane for work on the type specimens
of the Voskens/Maapa Foundry in 2003.

Fellowship in Printing History for these four years.
