octavo with 10" x 12.5" portfolio containing original leaves printed by George W.

Book Description The Plough Press, Nottingham, 2004. Hardback. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: FINE. First Edition. GEORGE W. JONES Printer Laureate. Lawrence Wallis. The Plough Press, Nottingham. 2004 First Edition ISBN 090281320X 128pp Illustrated Hardback. George W.Jones(1860-1942) was one of the most respected and celebrated fine printers of his generation. He entered the printing business in 1873 (at the young age of 13) and joined the printing house of Raithby & Lawrence in 1883. In 1889 he became an independent printer and publisher adopting vigorous business policies towards graphic design and technology. He flirted with many typographical styles and influences but it was the work of William Morris which endured to permeate the later work. His approach to technology was progressive and avant-garde and he was one of the first users of the Linotype machine producing some beautiful compact composition on the equipment. He was also a vanguard exponent of trichromatic halftone letterpress printing and produced the first British book to be illustrated by this process. In 1921 he was appointed printing adviser to the British arm of the Linotype organisation and he became directly responsible for the creation of a number of distinguished typefaces for linecasting, including Granjon, Estienne, Baskerville and Georgian. This is the first extensive study of his life and work and provides an important chapter in the literature of printing. This copy is in FINE condition in a FINE unclipped dustwrapper.
