Karen Cook
University of Kansas
Profile:

My academic background in art history and geography (specializing in cartography and its history) supported my PhD dissertation research about the role of color on lithographic maps in 19th-century geographical journals. Thereafter, experience as a geological cartographer followed by employment as a curator in the British Library Map Library led me to study the transition from hand to printed color on 19th-century geological maps. Presently, as a Special Collections Librarian in Spencer Library at the University of Kansas, I curate illustrated manuscripts and books, among which the color-illustrated 18th- and 19th-century ornithological books have become a particular interest.

My interests are in the printing of historic wallpapers and associated decorative papers.

Profile:

I have been an antiquarian bookseller( member ABAA, now ABA) since the mid 1970s, with a primary focus on garden history, early horticulture, architecture and decorative arts. Of late I have been paying attention to book illustration in general. Although I have taken courses in book illustration, I have not studied colour printing formally. Up until now I have relied on books such as those of Michael Twyman and Bamber Gascoigne and on a variety of exhibition catalogues I have picked up over the years.
