More widely, Caroline’s goal is to stimulate, support, and disseminate knowledge of printing history and culture. She is interested in all aspects of the history of printing, including the machinery and equipment, the industry and its personnel, printing processes, and the design of printed products such as books, newspapers, journals, and ephemera.
