Identifying prints: What is the process, and how is it done?
15-16 April 2013

The Institute of Conservation (Icon) Book and Paper Group are
pleased to bring you details of the second course in our 2013 CTR
programme. We have arranged, in conjunction with the University of
Reading's renowned Department of Typography and Graphic
Communication, a two day workshop on the identification of prints,
lead by Martin Andrews, to be held 15-16 April 2013.

The course we have developed with the Department of Typography is a
comprehensive theoretical and practical overview of the various
processes involved in printmaking. It includes relief and intaglio
printing as well as colour and black and white planographic
(lithographic) processes and alternative methods such as silk
screen. The programme will focus on the identification of these
processes through the study of a wide range of printed material
including fine prints and ephemera. This theoretical learning will
be reinforced by practical sessions using the department's replica
Gutenberg printing press and the use of printing plates by
participants. Each day will cover a particular aspect of printmaking
and at the end of the course it is hoped that participants will be
able to identify prints as being from wood cuts or wood engravings,
copper and steel engravings, etchings, aquatints, mezzotints,
various methods of lithography, gravure, collotype and many lesser
known processes.

Tea and coffee is provided and although lunch is not included there
is a cafe in an adjacent building on the University campus. You are
also welcome to bring a packed lunch with you.

The cost of this two day course is UKP280 to members and UKP300 for
non-members, to include materials.

Booking is now open and you can register using the online form
