Chapakhana is designed as an ongoing project that seeks the input and expertise of scholars and others interested in the history of print. As we continue to refine and expand our databases, we welcome your ideas, suggestions, and corrections. Because of the volume of the data and the limitations of the compilers’ regional and linguistic expertise, the website is bound to contain errors. For corrections and all other comments, please write to Prof. Ulrike Stark at
