Curators speak at RIT Faculty Showcase

Steve Galbraith and Amelia Fontanel will give a lecture at the RIT Tiger Talks Faculty Showcase on Wed., January 14, 2015, at 2 p.m. Their talk is entitled, "Three Thousand Pounds of Impression: A Printing Press in Scholarly Inquiry." It will trace the collection's dynamic growth over 45 years at RIT, by acquiring rare books and artifacts about the history of printing, design, and the book arts. Also, the Cary’s most recent major acquisition of a celebrated nineteenth-century iron printing press owned by William Morris and other printing luminaries has created unique opportunities for interdisciplinary instruction and scholarship, which are surprisingly  relevant in this digital age. The event is free to the RIT community.
