[BKARTS] Texas A&M Book History Workshop Lecture Series



We've put the finishing touches on the evening lecture series for the
3rd annual Texas A&M Book History Workshop, scheduled for May 23-28. The
speakers in this year's series are: Al Brilliant, founder of the Unicorn
Press; Margaret Ezell, Professor of English, Texas A&M University; Tom
Staley, Director of the Humanities Research Center, University of Texas;
David Gracy, Professor of Library and Information Science, University of
Texas; and Ron Tyler, Professor of History, University of Texas.  Topics
range from "books behaving badly" to modern small press history to the
forensic investigation of a controversial Alamo document to the royal
octavo edition of John James Audubon's Birds of America.  The evening
lecture series coincides with a week long workshop on the history of
books and printing with an emphasis on hand press era printing. The
workshop consists of a unique combination of hands-on laboratory
experiences and overview seminar sessions. The evening series is free
and open to the public. The daytime workshop sessions are limited to
registered workshop participants. Enrollment in the daytime workshop
sessions is limited to 20. Space remains but is going fast. For more
