Printing Conference - Sept. '05
- The American Printing History Association is pleased to announce that its
2005 annual conference, hosted by Mills College, will take place in the
San Francisco Bay Area on September 22nd & 23rd, 2005. Save the date! The
conference, titled [r]Evolution in Print: New Work in Printing History &
Practice, will combine academic papers with hands-on workshops and
demonstrations that focus on the history, current status, and future of
Watch for the Call for Papers & Workshops in early January.
Topics of interest include the current letterpress revival; the history of
typography and graphic design; printing along the Pacific Rim; histories
of comics, zines, graphic novels and street literature; contemporary
commercial print technologies; the end of ink on paper; radical printing
and the counterculture; and of course any new work in printing history.
Workshop possibilities include alternative printing methods on the
Vandercook, contemporary handpress use, techniques for photopolymer,
digital applications for use with paper and cuts, traditional tooling for
bookbinding, and other traditional and experimental studio techniques.
The conference will include optional weekend activities, along
with opportunities to connect with the unique constellation of places and
people that constitute print culture in the Bay Area. September is an
ideal time to take advantage of the glorious late summer weather and
active cultural calendar of San Francisco and environs. Please plan to
join us at this exciting event!
