First edition, limited to 150 numbered copies signed by the printer. This interesting book reprints comments on book design and printing from various famous printers and includes typographic arrangements and ornamentation which fits in with each printer's point. Color is used throughout; the book required 112 press runs amounting to a total of 28,000 impressions - a real labor of love. Well done book by Michael Tarachow of the Pentagram Press. Housed in a later clamshell box. Fine condition.
