Researching and recording printers’ devices can be a real challenge, but the necessity to find adequate solutions cannot be denied. Printers’ devices combine
pictures, texts (mottoes) and printer-related information in very elaborated and variable ways, which ask for specific bibliographical tools. Moreover, a certain
part of them lost its original context and can be found today in single-leaf collections, which need specific kinds of indexing for their part. After a long
period of scientific neglect, today there are a lot of current initiatives to establish models of description in different databases.
The workshop aims at making a survey of current research activities and discuss possible methods of description in order to link those initiatives and get confirmed standards for recording printers’ devices in future projects.
