About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for MATRIX 24, WINTER 2004, A REVIEW FOR PRINTERS & BIBLIPHILES by Randle, John & Rosalind (editors).

Description:

small 4to. paper-covered boards, dust jacket. (vi), 169, (3) pages. Printed in an edition limited to 800 copies, this being one of 720 trade copies. Matrix is the longest surviving and probably the last typographical journal to be printed by letterpress. It is an eclectic mix of fine printing, type design, and small press lore, forming a record of events and personalities whose memory would otherwise have died with their recorders. It is no exaggeration to say that in the future it will be impossible to research fine printing without reference to Matrix. This issue contains twenty-three articles and additional book reviews, including: " The Politician and the Printer: Somerset de Chair and Christopher Sandford"by Roderick Cave, "Pochoir in the New Millennium" by Adela Spindler Roatcat, "Words? Who Needs 'Em?" by Jerry Kelly, and "On Printing" by Walt Whitman. Illustrated throughout with many tipped in specimens on special paper, engravings, photographs, color plates, etc., and a 1940 John O'Connor, "The Lonely Oak, West Country," as frontispiece. paper-covered boards, dust jacket.
