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 Sandy Bottom News
Jill Cypher | Wallflowers Press

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.
