Default Book on printing history

I was recently asked to suggest books on type and printing. I mentioned Bringhurst, of course, but I'm trying to come up with the title of a big history of printing I borrowed some years ago from a friend with whom I'm no longer in contact.

About all I can offer as description is that the picture on the dust jacket - probably a woodcut - showed demons (or dead men in various stages of damage and decay) wrecking an early printshop.

Does that ring any bells?
