Permanent Markers: Aspects of the History of Printing

Friday, May 17, 2013 to Saturday, September 14, 2013

How did printing help define the modern world? Techniques from eighth-century Japan to Gutenberg, lithography to xerox, printing on ceramic, silk, and metal. Religious texts, printed money, and embossing for the blind. From Victorian era women's rights and abolitionism in Britain, to Cold War era punk in East Berlin. U.S. protest movements from Declaration of Independence to 60s civil rights.
