5th Edition of PDT

























On July 21, 2017, I was part of a discussion on the LA Letterpress Scene that the International Printing Museum presented as part of the APA Letterpress Wayzgoose that occurred July 20 through the 23. I talked about the development and use of photopolymer in Los Angeles as well as announcing the forthcoming 5th edition of my monograph, Printing digital type on the hand-operated flatbed cylinder press, which was eventuallly produced in May, 2018, by Chatwin Books, Seattle.

Printing digital type on the hand-operated flatbed cylinder press, the “seminal manual on letterpress printing with the photopolymer plate process,” was originally published in 1998. The new edition is 114 pages long and includes several related articles previously written by Lange. The paperback edition is available from The Bieler Press for $24.95 plus $4.76 U.S. postage (and $2.37 California sales tax if applicable).
