New on the bookshelf
PLUS Series Formula Guide, by Pantone - is the updated version of the PANTONE MATCHING SYSTEM®. This new series includes all of the current PANTONE MATCHING SYSTEM Colours plus 224 new colours!
(Set of two guides, coated and uncoated.)
Helvetica and The New York Subway System - The True (Maybe) Story, by Paul Shaw.
Hard cover with beautiful photography and design. Great images of lovely old Mosaic signage. Good book for people interested in typography and urban planning.
Elementary Platen Presswork, by Ralph W. Polk. This is a concise manual and reference book originally published in 1931, when printers wore shirts and ties to work and now for geeky letterpress devotees like me :)
