There are over 70 printing museums, or museums with printing collections who are members of the Association of European Printing Museums (AEPM). Stephen Hoskins was a founding member of the group, sitting on its board for many years and was its Chair between 2010 and 2012. During the years of his involvement with the AEPM Stephen was privileged to visit many of these museums.
This talk, a flying visit around Europe, stopping in Germany, France, Switzerland, Sweden, Belgium, Denmark, Holland and Ireland, will cover Steve’s personal top 10 and why they are his favourites. Sadly several of these museums no longer exist, but the talk will also briefly cover some new and exciting prospects.
