Printers' Devices as Decorative Elements in Library Architecture
Nipps, Karen
Library Quarterly, v83 n3 p271-278 Jul 2013
As has been described in the editorials of the past two issues, "The Library Quarterly" has changed in appearance and content to better reflect contemporary research on library-related issues. As the newly dubbed "History of the Book" editor, Karen Nipps is excited that the cover article segment of the journal is being expanded to acknowledge the growth of book history as it own discipline, replete with its own complexity, ambiguity, richness, and pertinence. The connection between the study of printers' and publishers' devices and library research may have seemed tenuous at times, but there is no arguing that the histories of books and libraries are closely conjoined. Moreover, it is the conviction of many that these studies and the future of libraries are inexorably entwined. The subject of this month's feature demonstrates this inseparability. It also pays homage to the significant contributions to book history made by previous authors with their work on printers' devices and hints at some of the variety readers of this segment will encounter in the future.
