The Print History Project

Welcome to our window on Wellington's Printing History. This website features the lives, businesses, and works of those many printers, publishers, booksellers and other book trade personnel who contributed to the print landscape of Wellington from 1840-2000. Through five snapshots which represent technological changes in the industry, we offer you a glimpse into the richness of this area of study and encourage your contributions and feedback.

This digitisation project is a collaboration between Victoria University of Wellington's New Zealand Electronic Text Centre, Wai-te-ata Press, and the University Library's J.C. Beaglehole Room, plus local archives, libraries and institutions. It has been funded through a generous Special Grant by the Trustees of the National Library of New Zealand.
