Journals on the art and history of printing
Special Collections owns a number of important periodicals about the art and history of printing, particularly publications produced through fine printing methods. A sampling of titles in Special Collections includes Stanley Morison’s “The Fleuron” (1923-1930), The Fine Press Book Association’s periodical, “Parenthesis” (1998-present), and one of our new acquisitions, a complete run of “Alphabet and Image,” edited by Robert Harling (1946-1952).
Many more periodicals on printing technologies, book arts, and the history of printing can be found in Periodicals and the circulating collection. To explore some of these titles, search the library catalog for the subject “printing periodicals.” The library’s History and Art of the Book Subject Guide is also a great resource for finding articles and books about printing and book history.
