Default Electronic Publishing goes all-electronic

The venerable Electronic Publishing magazine, which began its run in 1976 as TypeWorld, has just published its last print edition.

As Editor Keith Hevenor puts it: “Given the reality of the market, we feel that this is a good time to shift our attention to th expanding opportunities in e-newsletters, webcasts, and other special projects. As a result, this issue will be the last that we produce in this form.”

When Frank Romano started TypeWorld, inexpensive photo-typesetting systems from Compugraphic and others were just beginning to take off. Some like to say that ITC, with its U&lc quarterly, sparked the desktop publishing revolution. Well, so did TypeWorld. If you worked as a typesetter or graphic designer, you probably read these publications, which educated a growing market of readers in the use of type, of course — but also promoted new typefaces and systems.

After selling his magazine to PennWell in 1991, Frank Romano continued to write his monthly “Frank Talk” column. (This month’s is on films and papers used for old typesetting systems.) Other popular regulars include Ira Gold (he writes about “The birth of xerography” this month) and Dan Margulis.

Dan’s column this month, “The screwdriver and the hammer,” discusses using the black channel in CMYK to adjust images, and I suspect a lot of us would find it useful.

The passing of Electronic Publishing — and let’s face it, this is a passing — was hardly a surprise. But I am sorry to see it go. And I do hope they do have some interesting special projects for us in the future.
