Making (printing) history in Cyprus: a museum waiting to be made?

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOther

Abstract

We can claim that the history of printing in Cyprus remains an unexplored territory, especially when it comes to the documentation of historical and practical issues related to matters that concern the originators, their tools and materials as well as their products – and to the evaluation of these as cultural commodities. But also their relationships with colleagues within the print shops, with fellow printers and external collaborators (such as bookbinders, paper and printing type suppliers, machinery importers and technicians), and the community in general.
