30 and 31 March
The Printing Historical Society, the Centre for Printing History and Culture and the National Print Museum, have organised a conference titled From craft to technology and back again: print’s progress in the twentieth century. During the twentieth century, the printing industry underwent considerable change as it shifted from a craft-based trade to a technology-led profession, largely as a result of three major revolutions. In the composing room, there was a move from hand to machine composition followed by photo-setting and finally digital means of letter assembly; while in the press room, printers experienced a shift from letterpress to off-set lithography and latterly digital methods of production.
