First edition. This work celebrates the 40th anniversary of the Society, one that is concerned with the development of the graphic arts industry. The existence of the Society coincides with immense technological and human changes that have affected the industry, and this record of the Society's activities mirrors these profound changes year by year. The Society's archivist and compiler of this work has industriously assembled an archive documenting the Society's activities since 1957. From this archive, he has created this printed account with details of some 200 speakers, principal outings, and events, drawing on Minute Books, printed table offerings and keepsakes, and more substantial publications of the Society. Well-illustrated.
