We are surrounded by it — the world of print. At school, at home, on the street, from adverts to newspapers to books. Yet for most of us it is from a distant world. We are only consumers — readers. Yet we can all be writers, printers and publishers, in our own homes, offices and community centres. This book explains how.
First published in 1974, and now in its fifth edition, Print: How you can do it yourself! is a simple step-by-step guide for people who want to print their own posters, leaflets or even books. By doing it yourself with the help of this handbook, you can pick up four years’ learning in four days!
Now completely updated and revised, this handbook has come of age. It explains: simple design and print methods you can do yourself; what you need to know to get your publication printed for you by a printing house; and how to set up your own printshop or design “studio”.
Avoiding the commercial jargon that usually surrounds print production, author Jonathan Zeitlyn explains simple techniques such as stencil duplicating, photocopying and screen printing, and covers the production of art work, design and typesetting using computers or by hand.
This book enables you to communicate ideas and present an alternative point of view, creating a different kind of media.
