The Printing Historical Society is pleased to resume its programme of annual grants in 2018. The grants – a limited number worth up to £1,000 each – should support research into the history of: printing technology, the printing and related industries, printed materials and artefacts, type and type-founding, and printing processes and design; research into social aspects of book history and print culture may also be supported where the context is clearly related to printing history. On the whole the Society tries not to overlap with the grants offered by bibliographical societies. The deadline for applications is 21 March 2018. For detailed instructions on how to apply, please see the 'Grants Programme' section of the PHS website at, or contact Giles Mandelbrote by e-mail at
