The book: history and practice

The book: history and practice workshop took place on March 12 2012 at the UCD Humanities Institute of Ireland.

The workshop was a unique venture in knowledge transfer between historians of the book and design and typographical experts. The workshop was designed to facilitate a dynamic exhange of expertise between humanities scholars and design experts to enhance the skills capacity and professional practice of both cohorts.

The workshop enabled a formal interchange of knowledge and expertise between historians of the book and design professionals by means of a structured discussion centring on topics of mutual professional interest in book history, book design and typography. Among those who made presentations at the workshop were:

Mary Ann Bolger (DIT); Dermot McGuinne (DIT); Jason McElligott (Marsh's Library); David Smith (IADT); Clare Bell (DIT); Hilary Kenna (IADT); Philip Maddock (Rhode Island); Anne Brady (Vermillion Design); Elizabethanne Boran (Worth Library); Peter Maybury; Phil Baines (Central St Martins).
