Establishment Meeting (1 Oct 2018, Monday)

We establish the International Association of Printing Museums (IAPM) in order to expand the historical and cultural value of typography that has revolutionized the civilization of mankind over the past millennium and to share information and knowledge with historical, cultural, and educational printing institutions.
Throughout history, the advent of languages and text has been steadily and innovatively developed through the invention of printing technology and the development of computers. Also, its value is now undergoing a new transformation due to the development of digital technologies. At this point, the IAPM will play a pivotal role in promoting the exchange of printing culture (such as printing, recording, knowledge and information), while preserving its history and values.
The aim of the first meeting of the IAPM, which was held in 2016, was to get an overall view of the outline of the world of printing museums. This year’s meeting will officially announce an establishment process for the IAPM that will embrace the current challenges and necessities involved in forming a network between printing museums.
