[BKARTS] Book Club of California Program, San Francisco, CA



The Book Club of California invites you to a Public Program, 31 March 2008:

STRIKE-ON TYPE & OFF-SET PRINTING IN THE 1970s: The IBM Selectric Composer as Desktop Publishing.

Drawing on the nearly-vanished tools of the light-table & t-squares, razor blades & wax, John McBride of the Red Hill Press shows how the IBM Selectric type setting machine put composition into the hands of small & independent publishers; how strike-on type yielded to photo-type and then to the digital.

No slides, just examples & samples

Hospitality at 5 p.m. in the Club rooms, presentation at 6 pm. in the SPUR room.
