Event description

Description

For the purpose of this conference we define ‘industrial and business publishing’ as the production and issuing of commercial literature that not only utilizes the skills of traditional publishing (authorship, editorial direction, the commissioning of artists, designers and photographers) but also necessitates the supervision of printing and distribution. These customary activities are, however, executed by—or for—an industry for which publishing is not the primary business.

Industries not engaged in printing as their primary concern have also utilised printing for the manufacturing of its products which may use substrates other than paper: for example transfer printing in the production of ceramics or enamel or the printing on tin.

The association between industry and publishing is not new. We therefore invite papers that consider its development from its earliest days through to the end of the twentieth century, by which time the issuing of printed matter had become an important ancillary manufacturing activity and industrial publishing finally recognised as a professional adjunct to business.

Papers not only consider the design, production and distribution of industrial and business publishing, but also the companies that issued it, the jobbing printers that produced it, and the clients who used it.

This conference is an attempt to shed new light on the relationship between regional printers and the businesses they served.
