The best book I know of for gaining an understanding of the real world production of books. Especially good for gaining a knowledge of terminology and standard practice in this field. The 3rd edition covers technology through film composition and offset printing, thus missing the digital revolution. Just about everything in this book is still relevant for any student of the craft of making books, at whatever level of involvement. ( )
