General Printing

Liber Apertus Press, 2006 - 203 pages
General Printing is a comprehensive guide to letterpress printing. With 300 photos and 140 illustrations, it offers detailed step-by-step visual instruction. This edition was originally published in 1963, and has been out of print for many years. The book's recent popularity and scarcity has made it one of the top ten most sought out-of-print books of any kind for several years. It has now been reissued in an exact facsimile of the 1963 edition. Topics include: handsetting type; taking proofs; locking up forms; make-ready; feeding the press; tricks of the trade; and much more. "This manual is profusely illustrated with detailed and useful photographs and should occupy a prominent place on the shelf of every letterpress printer. It will serve as the next best thing to an apprenticeship at the feet of a master printer." --David S. Rose, Introduction to Letterpress Printing.
