Call for Papers for the American Printing History Association 2013 Annual Conference

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

Press release from the issuing company

The American Printing History Association welcomes proposals for its 2013 Annual Conference. More details will be available at the website of the American Printing History Association, www.printinghistory.org.

Proposals are due by March 7, 2013

From medieval woodblock books to the most current digital print technologies, color has been central to graphic communications. Color is also an expressive element with a rich and complex history. Since the invention of printing from movable type, printers have sought to perfect technologies that capture and reproduce the visible world. Reflecting on this historic legacy and its rapidly evolving future, the program committee invites proposals that examine color and color printing from a variety of perspectives.

Historical perspectives could encompass technologies from the very beginnings of printing to contemporary reproduction processes, from all parts of the world, including woodcut, engraving, chromolithography, lithography, pochoir, intaglio, flexography, silkscreen, hexachrome and stochastic color, and inkjet. What influence is today’s ubiquitous RGB digital color having on color printing? Printers, designers, and artists notable for their use or study of color, such as Currier & Ives, Owen Jones, William Page, John Earhart, Jean Berté, W. A. Dwiggins, Albert Munsell, and Josef Albers could be suitable subjects. What influence did companies such as Pantone, Van Son, and Westvaco have on color printing? How have commercial and fine art printers approached color in printing differently?

Attendees will have the opportunity to sample some of New York’s cultural riches through special members-only tours and visits to the special collections of institutions and organizations such as The New York Historical Society, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Pace Paper and a state-of-the-art digital color printing company.
