  • Books on the Printing Process.

    He guys.

    I'm looking for some books that'd be a good resource for teaching me a bit more about the printing process. I know enough to keep me employed as a designer, but I want to build my repertoire. I want to be able to understand more of what our printers do and what they go through when he get a finished order back.

    "What sort of process" you might say. Well, I managed to find a book about plate lithography from the local library, so I guess I'm wanting to brush up about the more common processes used. I'm also always interested to read about the origins (no matter what the subject).

    Anyone know of any good books they could recommend?
