The American Printing History Association (APHA) is pleased to announce the 2014 Mark Samuels Lasner Fellowship in Printing History for the study of printing history. An award of up to $2,000 is available for research in any area of the history of printing in any form, including all the arts and technologies relevant to printing, the book arts, and letter forms. Applications are especially welcome from those working in the area of American printing history, but the subject of research has no geographical or chronological limitations, and may be national or regional in scope, biographical, analytical, technical, or bibliographical in nature. Study related to the history of printing with a recognized printer or book artist may also be supported. The fellowship can be used to pay for travel, living, and other expenses.
APHA fellowships are open to individuals of any nationality. Applicants need not be academics and an advanced degree is not required.
Applicants are asked to submit an application form, curriculum vitae, and a one-page proposal. Two confidential letters of recommendation specific to this fellowship should be sent separately by the recommenders.
Applications and letters of support are due by Monday, 2 December 2013. An announcement of the award will be made at the APHA annual meeting, to take place in New York on Saturday, 25 January 2014.
