Printing Colour 1700-1830: call for contributions

A call for contributions of chapters for a peer-reviewed book Printing Colour 1700–1830: Histories, Techniques, Functions and Receptions has been announced. The editors are Elizabeth Savage (Institute of English Studies, University of London) and Margaret Morgan Grasselli (National Gallery of Art, Washington DC), with assistance from Gemma Cornetti (Warburg Institute, University of London). The anticipated publication date is mid-2020. The book will build upon research presented at the conference of the same name (Institute of English Studies, April 2018). It aims to understand how new (and old) forms of colour printing changed communication during the late handpress period.

Submissions are sought from scholars, curators and practitioners: all who care for colour-printed material, seek to understand how it was produced and used, or engage with it in research. 300-word abstracts should be submitted by 8 June 2018 at www.bit.ly/PC17001830BOOK. Chapters of 4,000–6,000 words (including notes and captions) with up to 10 illustrations will be due by 15 February 2019. The book will be peer-reviewed and published in full colour. Contributors will be responsible for sourcing images and copyright for their contributions, but they will qualify for fee waivers from many heritage collections because the publisher is a charitable academic press. This book is an output of the Printing Colour Project, www.printingcolourproject.com. For enquiries, please contact Gemma Cornetti at printingcolourproject@gmail.com.
