      APHA ANNOUNCES 2007 FELLOWSHIP IN PRINTING HISTORY

      New York, August 1, 2006: The American Printing History Association (APHA)
      is pleased to announce a fellowship award for the study of printing
      history. For 2007, an award of up to $2,000 is available for research in
      any area of the history of printing in any form, including all the arts and
      technologies relevant to printing, the book arts, and letter forms.
      Applications are especially welcome from those working in the area of
      American printing history, but the subject of research has no geographical
      or chronological limitations, and may be national or regional in scope,
      biographical, analytical, technical, or bibliographical in nature. Study
      related to the history of printing with a recognized printer or book artist
      may also be supported. The fellowship can be used to pay for travel,
      living, and other expenses.

      APHA fellowships are open to individuals of any nationality. Applicants
      need not be academics and an advanced degree is not required.

      Previous APHA Fellowship recipients have included Paul Shaw for a full
      length biography of W. A. Dwiggins in 2006, 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 our private donor who has funded the
      Fellowship in Printing History for its first five years.

      Applicants are asked to submit an application form, curriculum vitae, and a
      one-page proposal. Two confidential letters of recommendation specific to
      this fellowship should be sent separately by the recommenders.

      Applications and letters of support must be received by Friday 8 December
      2006. An announcement of the award will be made at the APHA annual meeting,
      to take place in New York on Saturday, 27 January 2007.

      An application form is available at the APHA website at
      http://www.printinghistory.org/htm/fellowship. To receive an application
      form by mail contact: Fellowship Committee, APHA, P.O. Box 4519, Grand
