Books on Printing and Paper?


we are really getting into the more technical details on printing, spot colors, paper, preflight ect in my classes right now. I don’t fully understand everything and was wondering if there was a book/textbook that goes over the details of everything print that someone knows of. I tried googling it but didn’t come up with anything.


International Paper’s Pocket Pal has been around forever, but they keep updating it. I remember starting out and always referring to an earlier version of the book, but I haven’t looked at it in years.

I heartily recommend it.

Yup. Indispensable.
(It was a course-required book buy when I was in college. That it’s not now is very sad to me.)
