Printing on the Iron Handpress is the most comprehensive book ever published on the subject. Precise techniques for printing on the handpress are presented here in lucid, step-by-step procedures that Rummonds perfected over a period of almost twenty-five years at his celebrated Plain Wrapper Press and Ex Ophidia.
In tandem with more than 400 detailed diagrams by George Laws, Rummonds describes every procedure a printer needs to know from setting up a handpress studio to preparing books for the binder. Printing historians, as well as amateur and professional printers, will be intrigued by the wealth of additional information on historical printing practices that Rummonds intersperses throughout his text.
