[BKARTS] Book History at A&M Workshop



The third annual Texas A&M Workshop in the History of Books and Printing
will take place May 23-28, 2004, in the Cushing Memorial Library and
Archives.  To register or find out more about the workshop, go to:

This five-day workshop provides an intensive, hands-on introduction to
hand press era printing and its allied technologies--typecasting,
papermaking, bookbinding, illustration, and ink-making.  Students will
have the opportunity to cast type in a hand mould.  They will also set
type, impose formes, make paper, and print on a replica common press.
The workshop is intended for librarians, archivists, students, teachers,
collectors, private individuals and others who work in areas related to
or who have an interest in the subject.  The workshop also includes a
series of evening lectures by scholars and others active in the field of
book history.  Again, to find out more about the workshop, go to:
