About this Item

oblong 4to. softcover. 340 pages. Printing industry icon, Frank Romano, is out with his latest book, "History of the Phototypesetting Era," published by the Graphic Communication Institute at Cal Poly (GrCI). Tracing one of the most important eras and turning points of printing industry technological transitions, this 340-page book is for those wanting to understand the technology and impact of phototypesetting that linked the centuries-old practice of hot metal typesetting and letterpress printing with the computer age. Romano dedicated this book to the late Jonathan Seybold, a well-know pioneer in the development and advancement of phototypesetting. After years of preparation, Roman spent 10 weeks at Cal Poly finalizing the manuscript and included 13 Cal Poly students as co-authors. All production took place in Cal Poly's laboratories by University Graphic System (UGS), the Cal Poly Graphic Communication Department's experiential student-run faculty-supervised printing, publishing, and imaging company. Romano calls this book, ".a time capsule for a time of technological upheaval in the printing industry. Romano notes, "the narrative ends in 1985 as desktop publishing and laser imagesetting were being introduced." Each book is personally hand-signed by Frank Romano. Bookseller Inventory # 127608
