I want to share two recent developments in my professional life that may be of interest to Vanderblog readers.
First, I’m pleased to share that I have been awarded a short-term fellowship at the Newberry Library in Chicago. I will study its collection of printing trade journals as one of my efforts to expand a second edition of my book, develop new content for this website and support my itinerant teaching.
Second, I have been named Editor in Chief of the (soon to be relaunched) American Printing History Association website. This is a consolidation of my positions as webmaster and newsletter editor. The newsletter (pdf only since 2009) will be subsumed by the new site becoming a weekly feature of the front page. In the interim, I am building a bull pen of original, short articles (200-400 plus images) on printing history, and so invite you, the Vanderblog community, to write me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
