TRANSATLANTIC TYPE: ANGLO-AMERICAN PRINTING
IN THE NINETEENTH CENTURY
American Printing History Association
Twenty-Sixth Annual Conference
19-21 October 2001
Washington University, St. Louis

In light of recent events we want to announce that the American Printing
History Association' s annual conference will proceed as planned.
The conference, hosted by Washington University, focuses on the relationship
between printing in Britain and the United States in the period 1800 to 1914.
This topic is interpreted broadly, resulting in a program which should appeal
to lovers of printing and the book arts as well as those interested in
literature, cultural studies, and design.

An exciting schedule of events is planned. The conference begins Friday
evening with a keynote address (free and open to the public) by Marianne
Tidcombe, noted bookbinding historian and author of a new history of the
Doves Press. Saturday will be devoted to talks by distinguished speakers Eric
Holzenberg, Karen Nipps, William S. Peterson, Michael Twyman, Ron Tyler, and
Philip Weimerskirch. In addition, the conference will mark the opening of an
exhibition, "The Triple Crown Abroad: The Kelmscott, Doves, and Ashendene
Presses Beyond the British Isles," and other activities include a tour of
Washington University's Studio for the Illustrated Book, a Saturday night
gala dinner at the St. Louis Art Museum, and a Sunday visit (including brunch
and multiple special exhibitions) to the St. Louis Mercantile Library.
The conference fee of $60.00 ($75.00 for non-members) includes all lectures,
admission to the opening reception, Saturday lunch, and Sunday brunch. An
additional charge of $35.00 is made for the Saturday night dinner. Hotel and
airfare discounts are available.
