Suggestions for book about printing production

tsoler's picture


I am looking for a book specialised in printing production.
It is important to be updated with the latest printing techniques
explaining in simple language (english is not my mother tongue)
a wide variety of printing issues.

For the moment I am thinking for the "PRODUCTION FOR THE GRAPHIC DESIGNER"
by Craig James.

I am looking forward for any recommendations.

Thanks in advance

"Pocket Pal" from International Paper is regularly updated and an easy read.

A Guide to Graphic Print Production (Hardcover)
by Kaj Johansson, Peter Lundberg, Robert Ryberg

This is the textbook a lot of graphic design schools use, if that is the kind of book you are looking for. Amazon will let you peek into a few pages.
