The latest issue of L’Illustrazione, the first journal dedicated to the history of book illustrations, praises the Printing Colour Project for leading ‘a remarkable change of perspective’ (103) in a seven-page review essay that spans its history from 2011, assessing its conferences, publications, exhibitions, and training events.
It’s thrilling to know that these activities deliver on the aim to ‘present a picture as complete as possible of the current state of research, according to a deeply interdisciplinary approach that includes the history of art, the history of the book, bibliography, conservation science, and research on technical sources and printing practice’ (104).
The review essay is a thoughtful, careful assessment of so many people’s work over so many years. It’s a great honour. Thank you, Ilaria Andreoli and L’Illustrazione. We hope to see you at our next events!
