Alan Marshall:

How print became heritage:
150 years of printing museums

If you didn’t make it to Chania for this year’s annual AEPM conference, Alan Marshall’s talk is now available on-line HERE.


Alan Marshall worked in printing and publishing for twenty years in Britain, then in France, contributing regularly to the trade press on various aspects of printing history. In the course of preparing a doctoral thesis on the Lumitype-Photon and the changeover from hot metal to phototypesetting he began working with the Lyons Printing Museum which he directed from 2002 until his retirement in 2015. He is currently chair of the Association of European printing museums.
