Beschreibung:

Cloth, 8vo, 25 cm, xi, 222 pp, ills. From the blurb: "This is the biography of a major British printer, one that should be much better known to historians of printing and in particular all those who are interested in how printing types come to be adopted, utilised and promoted by a press. The Kynoch Press, which flourished for over a century; was the in-house printer to the huge ICI group, but it also produced quality printing for a range of other customers, work which earned it a reputation as one of the foremost British printing houses of the period. The strength of the Press lay in its composing-room, which pioneered the introduction of nineteenth-century English revival types into Britain during the 1930s, an approach then successfully adopted by the Curwen Press and others. In addition, its unique collection of artists' and European types attracted British industrial clients with an interest in design. After 1945, the typographic reputation of the Press was maintained as it developed a progressive and contemporary type list. The change to photocomposition was embraced and in its latter years the Press was innovative in embracing new opportunities, in particular with a complete foreign-language service offered to export businesses. However, the economic recession of the early 1980s combined with other factors forced ICI to question the viability of an in-house printer, and after an abortive sale the Press was closed in 1981." Includes very detailed listings of the types held by the press at every period. As New in dustwrapper. Buchnummer des Verkäufers

Inhaltsangabe: The Kynock Press, which flourished for over a century, had a reputation as one of the foremost printing houses of the period. The strength of the Press lay in its introduction of 19th-century English revival types into Britain during the 1930s. In its latter years the Press was innovative in embracing new opportunities, however, the economic recession of the 1980s forced its closure in 1981. This history of the Kynoch Press is enriched by personal accounts from surviving staff and also contains detailed listings of the types held by the press at every period.
