AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'I cannot think of any work that resembles The printing of a masterpiece. It is a memoir of the flowing intermesh of typography, ink-and-paper, Renaissance cultural history and deeply personal, hands-on knowledge. It is about the printing of an exquisite book, an object in which every stage of craftsmanship has been scrupulously considered.' (Chris Wallace-Crabbe, quoted on publisher's website, http://users.vic.chariot.net.au/~bpepper/index.html)
