A deeply interdisciplinary conference, BLOCKS PLATES STONES will survey the state of research into cut woodblocks, intaglio plates, lithographic stones, and other matrices/printing surfaces. It will bring together researchers, curators, special collections librarians, printers, printmakers, cataloguers, conservators, art historians, book historians, digital humanities practitioners, scientists, and others who care for these objects, seek to understand them, or use them in research. The discussion will encompass all media and techniques, from the fifteenth century through the present, with a programme including papers, posters, object handling sessions, and demonstrations.
