From the dust jacket: "The author deals not only with book manufacture as the designer needs to see it, but with such matters as editorial work, the selection and arrangement of type, illustration, jacket design, estimating, and the choice of a printer. The treatment of each subject is developed far enough to interest the qualified typographer as well as the beginner. Book design is defined as the planning which determines the physical qualities of the book. The theme of the present work is that such planning must be based on knowledge of the machinery and processes of modern industrial book production. Many of the methods of design described here are of course applicable to other kinds of printing, such as that of advertisements. Indeed, they need to be understood by everyone interested in design and quality in printing.". First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine condition/Very Good jacket (price clip).
