Share a Story with APHA

The APHA website is now accepting short articles on lesser known aspects of the history of printing and related arts and crafts, including calligraphy, typefounding, typography, papermaking, bookbinding, illustration, and publishing. Texts must be original but are not required to be scholarly. (That need is well met by APHA’s journal Printing History.) The website editor will consider biographical sketches, tales of provenance, professional reminiscences, as well as preliminary research. All are encouraged to submit—APHA members and nonmembers, students and non-academics, the trained and self-taught—by contacting the editor.
