      The American Printing History Association (APHA) is delighted to
      announce a new fellowship award for the study of printing history.
      For 2006, an award of 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. 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.

      The deadline for receipt of applications and letters of support is
      Friday 9 December 2005. An announcement of the award will be made at
      the APHA annual meeting, to take place in New York on Saturday, 28
      January 2006.

      Previous APHA Fellowship recipients have included Lance Hidy for work
      on the Society of Printers in 2005, Susanna Ashton for work on
      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.

      APHA wishes to thank the private donor who has generously funded the
      Fellowship in Printing History for these four years.

      For more information about the fellowship program, including a
