3. Printing for the workplace: industrial and business publishing
12 July 2018, Gladstone Library, Hawarden, Flintshire, Wales, UK

Deadline for submissions: 30 January 2018

This conference considers ‘industrial and business publishing’ that is, the production and issuing of commercial literature that not only utilizes the skills of traditional publishing (authorship, editorial direction, the commissioning of artists, designers and photographers) but also necessitates the supervision of printing and distribution. These customary activities are, however, executed by—or for—an industry for which publishing is not the primary business.
