Going from idea to print­ed page is a com­plex process that wraps in a large num­ber of oth­er dis­ci­plines. Some are pret­ty obvi­ous: the need to bind work into books, or to wrap pack­ages well.

It’s strange to think of some of the oth­er arts attached to print­ing: the man­age­ment and lay­out of a print­ing office; the union and staff rela­tions were all spe­cial­ist areas in let­ter­press print­ing, and this sec­tion sheds a lit­tle light on them.
