inPicture From Earth to space: Fabulous firsts brought to light at the Museum of Printing in Armenia What type of images come to mind when you think of a printing museum in Armenia? Bibles and antique books? Printing machines and clichés? A collection of pioneering newspapers from every corner of the Armenian world? It’s probably not some specially processed moonlight-tinted parchment highlighting the Armenian alphabet for a mighty voyage from Earth to space; something more analogous to “louys tesav” (լոյս տեսա՝ւ) or seeing the light of day—pun intended! At h-pem we celebrate the International Day of Light (May 16th) and the International Museum Day (May 18th) by going back to the first dawn of Armenian printing that ushered in the great epoch of Armenian enlightenment and national awakening.
