"Deposition approaches" ?

That is a new one for me. ( Maybe I slept through that class ?)

Is there some new manner of printing that makes use of phase transition - where a gas turns to some solid colorant which is impinged upon some substrate ?

Depositing multiple layers of ink jetted polymer or ink.

Great job Frank!
You can purchase the book at www.designtotouch.com
One slight correction, the book was actually published by the members of IEGA and was a joint effort by the association. Thank you for spending your time on this topic!

The technology to transfer a solid colorant as a gas to a substrate and create an image is called dye-diffusion thermal transfer; aka D2T2. Kodak as well as others use in to print photos in kiosks...

@Wayne L. Cook - as far as I know - that was what they "thought"was happening - but it was later shown to be untrue.

but, this is really pointless, as i think the entire point Frank of the video was about this wonderful traditional / conventional Engraving book.
