ISO: Info for a Calendar

Via the contact form:

I am a teacher of Digital Printing at Chandler High in Chandler Arizona. Can you help me with information to create a calendar that could help promote printing awareness in school. Important days in history, national printing or other graphic art and communication or any reason we could bring some attention to the printing industries and their importance to society. Anything would be of help.

Thanks, Bernard Clark

    Dear Mr. Clark:

    This website has developed a History of Printing Timeline that you will find helpful for your purpose.
    Another online resource includes APHA member Michael Babcock’s Printer’s iCal calendar.

    There are of course many printed resources, a few are cited below APHA’s timeline, but the most readily available may be Warren Chappell’s A Short History of the Printing Word, Hartley & Marks, 1999.
