The History List


 Note:  I have started a Square Marketplace to offer Artwork for sale.  I will try to keep in updated as best I can.

ADVERTISEMENT: Intaglio/Engraving Printing Demonstrations & Presentations for schools, libraries, college, historical societies, etc.  Now Booking!

The program takes a look at the Engravings of Paul Revere in the 1770s and how it affected the American Revolution, including the infamous "Boston Massacre" print. A great way to supplement America 250th commemorations and curricula!  Either a slide-lecture with prints, or, a full-on printing demonstration with a portable printing press.  Contact me for more info!

(the program can instead be focused on overall Intaglio printing in the New England area ca. 1630 - 1800)

NOTICE:  Living History page is going through some updating issues.  Please refer to my MBLC Library Performers Directory page for another way to see listings in the meantime:
