History of the Printed Image Network launched

The His­to­ry of the Print­ed Image Net­work (HoPIN) is a new net­work for any­one inter­est­ed in the his­to­ry of print­ed images, includ­ing (but not lim­it­ed to) artis­tic prints, book illus­tra­tion, chap­books, bal­lad-sheets, etc. There is no charge for mem­ber­ship or for online events. The net­work is part of the Cen­tre for Print­ing His­to­ry and Cul­ture (a joint ven­ture of Birm­ing­ham City Uni­ver­si­ty and the Uni­ver­si­ty of Birm­ing­ham) and is open to any­one inter­est­ed in the his­to­ry of the print­ed image. An online launch event is planned for Mon­day, 30 Novem­ber, 5.00pm to 6.30pm (UK time) — more details short­ly. To join HoPIN, email the net­work co-ordi­na­tor: john.hinks [at] bcu.ac.uk
