Summary
  • "The first part of the guide will provide an overview of printing a book, first describing the processes of making a book and then considering some of their consequences for the economics of book production. The second part of this guide will give more detailed information on these processes; readers might wish to read both parts simultaneously, moving from overview to detail as needed, or to read the overview and then proceed to details. I explain the technical terms being used as they come up, but there is also a glossary in Appendix 2 that will be of assistance"--
