Default Printing 1770–1970

Last week I bought Printing 1770–1970 by Michael Twyman, Emeritus Professor of Typography & Graphic Communication, University of Reading. It was first published in 1970 by Eyre & Spottiswoode Ltd to celebrate the bicentenary of the firm, which was one of London's biggest printers; it was reissued in 1998 by the British Library in conjunction with Reading University Press.

The subtitle of this well-known book is, 'an illustrated history of its development and uses in England'. It is not about book printing but about the kind of work done by jobbing printers, which expanded enormously from about 1770.

The book is being remaindered now: it may still be available from Postscript Books and possibly elsewhere.

The ISBN of the edition sold by the BL is 0-7123=4596-5; the ISBN of the distributors in the USA, Oak Knoll Press, is 1-884718-78-7.

Buy it if you haven't got it already!
