From the flap copy:
"A Handbook of Type and Illustration deals with the printing and the production of illustrated books. Methods of illustration shown include coloured linocuts, wood engravings and coloured woodcuts, line copper engravings and coloured etchings, relief etchings and coloured lithographs. Letterpress and offset processes of line and halftone reproduction are also described and illustrated. There are chapters on the typography of illustrated books, with notes on titling, initial letters and printers' flowers. Further chapters deal with methods of binding and case-making and the production of book jackets, with numerous specimens of display typefaces suitable for these purposes.

"There are over forty pages of different text settings, showing various typefaces. The text for these is continuous and is a specially edited version of Thomas Bewick's charming, informative, and all-too-little-known Memoir. Lastly there is a ready reference of technical information of letterpress and offset printing; paper sizes, imposition details, bookbinding methods, materials and costs."    [Book ID # 1956]
