Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book after acquiring an 1876 platen-style letterpress. It answered all of my questions, and covered the process of printing in great detail. It's not a great book for modern printing methods, and If you have questions about digital pre-flight, you should find another book. It doesn't cover polymer plates, since those are a digital development. It'll show you how to set movable type or wood blocks, and operate your press.
