From screw press to spectral density: re-evaluating the print revolution
|Starts:||13:30 25 Jan 2019|
|Ends:||15:00 25 Jan 2019|
|What is it:||Workshop|
|Organiser:||John Rylands Research Institute|
The principal objective of this pilot project is to explore how the combination of traditional bibliographical research methods with digital and scientific analysis can produce new insights into early printing technology.
This workshop will present case studies which explore how the use of advanced digital imaging techniques can be harnessed to investigate specific features of early printing technology: type, ink and paper. Drawing on the unique expertise and collections in Manchester, the aim is to develop a larger project which will advance fundamental research questions on the nature and impact of the most significant technological innovation of the fifteenth century.
