Every student coming out of Art School needs to know what is in this book. You can learn it in school, or you can learn it on the job, but if you design anything, you will eventually need to learn what is in this book. Lots of illustrations that explain esoteric concepts very well.
Buy it, read it and learn it-you will save money in the long run.

HASH(0xa6dbdc3c) out of 5 stars Instructor's Review - A Print Production Tech Manual June 3 2007
By apurplevan_design - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I teach first & second year multimedia and design at a community college. Following are my thoughts on this book.

Pros:
Summaries- The sidebar summaries and callouts are truly excellent. Often, there are accompanying illustrations that are "worth a thousand words".

Depth of information- Overall, there is a *lot* of information here. No punches are pulled when it's presented, either. As far as I can tell, the information is accurate.

Images- The illustrations and photos used are of excellent quality. There are images of magnified printed pages from different printing process that are crystal clear.

Cons:
Typos- There is at least one typo per page, often combined with a grammatical error as well. 99% of the time you can figure out what it means with little to no trouble.

European Conventions used inconsistently- Most of the time, the authors used North American conventions...except when they don't. It's a great idea to give info on both North American *and* European conventions (A4 vs. 8.5" x 11" paper, pixels per inch vs. centimeters per inch), but the authors do not always clearly delineate which convention is used.

Overall, this book reads like a detailed technical manual. It is *not* a design manual with splashy sidebars about finding inspiration. It is *not* for the novice designer. The publisher needs to get it proofed a time or three. Despite its shortcomings, I use it in the course of building lectures for my class constantly. The only other book I've seen get this in-depth is the Int'l Paper Pocket Pal.

This review is for the second edition of the book.

HASH(0xa5e08360) out of 5 stars Very informative - outstanding! May 6 2005
By Ron - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is a great introduction to the printing industry. It covers all the major types of printing: offset, digital, screen, etc. and all aspects of print production, from graphic design to post processing. It also includes detailed analysis of the things that can go wrong during the print process and how to avoid and correct them. The book is well written with LOTS of very helpful photographs and graphics.

I knew virtually nothing about printing before I picked up this book, but feel like an expert now!

HASH(0xa6853378) out of 5 stars Jam packed with typo's and grammatical errors Jan. 19 2007
By Ms. J. Hawkyard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Yes ok , this book may be full of useful information for graphic designers or students of graphic design but the thing that really miffed me is that I spent $80 on this book and come to read it and find that virtually every page has AT LEAST one typo or obvious gramatical error in it. As a student of graphic design (who really cant afford an $80 book) this really bugs me that so much emphasis is put on spell checking your work over and over to make sure there are no mistakes and then you buy a book all about graphic design and it's jam packed with typo's! How unproffessional is that?! And that is why I only give it one star. If you can get past the typo's and the gramatical errors that make the difficult subject matter even more difficult to digest then go ahead and get the book cos it will be worth it - but if so little effort was put into spell checking the book - it makes me wonder about the accuracy and the validity of the information contained.

HASH(0xa5e49a80) out of 5 stars Too much and a little dated Aug. 22 2005
By Katie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
If you want one book that introduces everything involved in print production this may be a good book for you. There is a lot of information in this book. More than any novice designer would need to know. For that reason I found it a bit overwhelming.

It seemed some of technology mentioned was dated and the body text could get confusing at times. However, the call outs on almost every page really did a great job of summarizing the text.
