From the front flap: “Private Presswork is a bibliographic approach to the subject of avocational printing and the related book arts. A novice can get a good start in the printing profession by reading and investigating some of the materials listed here. Rather than being a how-to-do-it manual, this volume is instead a classified guide to literature in many areas of printing instruction, especially the areas of book design, illustration, and book binding. It is intended for the growing number of people who are seeking a satisfying and creative way to spend their leisure time. It is also for the many amateur printers who wish to expand their knowledge, improve their skills, or add to their printing experience.”
