Event description
Dr John Martin examines the bohemian, sexual, craft and muscular masculinities that populated the printing trade.

About this event

Bohemian, sexual, craft and muscular masculinities populated the printing trade while Australian women in the printing industry are mostly undocumented. To redress this imbalance, the colour ink supplements illustrated by Harry J Weston and Alexander Sass in the graphic arts journal Wimble's Reminder will be examined.

Dr John Martin is a graphic designer with extensive professional experience in industry and education. His research practice centres on Australian twentieth-century communication, graphic design and print, practices, techniques, technologies and processes.
