The Inland Chapter
Dear Print History Enthusiast,
The American Printing History Association was founded in 1974 on the east coast in New York, and gradually its chapters have spread across the United States, to the west coast, to California. Until now, there has been no local chapter in the heartland; the home of the world-class Newberry Library, the historic printing hub of the country, and the historic homes of Rand McNally and typefounders Barnhart Brothers and Spindler.
Now, a new mid-western chapter of APHA has formed and you are invited to become a part of it.
The Inland Chapter of APHA has been named in honor of the long-running printerís trade magazine The Inland Printer. By joining the Inland chapter, and by participating in meetings, lectures, and field trips, you can connect with other Midwestern print enthusiasts, as well as encourage the study of printing history.
The Inland chapter hosted the National APHA conference in Chicago on October 12-13, 2012.
Join APHA online here!
April Sheridan, President
Join us for a fundraiser to benefit the Hamilton Wood Type Museum, Saturday, December 15, 12:00pm until 6:00pm, at Columbia College's Center for Book & Paper Arts (CBPA)1104 South Wabash, 2nd Fl, Chicago.
As you may know, the museum is being evicted from their current historic space and is asking for your support to make their impending move possible. Please consider donating some of your time and some of your printed material into making the dream of a new facility come true.
There's no better time to spread the joy of printing than during this season of need! For more information about donating prints, please contact: April Sheridan: email@example.com
