      From the invitation: 'The History of Printing is an integral part of
      the general history of civilization. The principal vehicle for the
      conveyance of ideas during the past five hundred years, printing
      touches on, and often penetrates, almost every sphere of human
      activity. Neither political, constitutional, ecclasiastical and
      economic events, nor sociological, philosophical and literary
      movements can be fully understood without taking into account the
      influence which the printing press has exerted on them,' wrote S.H.
      Steinberg in 1995. The vigor and function of letterpress printing
      remain today and you are invited to see examples of this industrial
      craft in contemporary forms in early November.

      Participants in the exhibition include:

      Mike Anderson | The At Random Press
      Stuart Bradley | The Railway Station Press
      David Clinger | Press of the Chesapeake Bay Retriever and

      Exhibition sponsors include the Chesapeake Chapter of the American
      Printing History Association and the Rare Books & Special Collections
      Department of the Catholic University of America.

      The American Printing History Association encourages the study of
      printing history and its related arts and skills, including
      calligraphy, typefounding, typography, papermaking, bookbinding,
      illustration, and publishing. APHA is especially, but by no means
      exclusively, interested in American printing history.
