L. Elizabeth Upper

APHA is pleased to announce the 2014 Mark Samuels Lasner Fellowship is awarded to L. Elizabeth Upper of the Warburg Institute, University of London. The APHA Fellowship funds will be used to support travel to visit the two dozen or so friskets (ca.1480-ca.1630) she has learned of scattered around the UK, France and Switzerland. Direct visual analysis will help her determine what texts they were used to print, and the texts in whose bindings they survived the centuries – the glossiness of the deeply textured crust of printing ink makes it almost impossible to take photographs usable for this kind of analysis. The Fellowship will also support costs of permission fees and official photography for the article she will write, which will be submitted to Printing History.
