Judging a Book By Its Covers

Published on August 31, 2018

The Museum of Printing in Haverhill, Mass., has published a book of 175 covers from The Inland Printer which began publication in 1883. The covers constantly pushed the envelope to show what printing could do in terms of imagery and color as the industry and technology evolved.

Frank - thanks for all of your efforts to put together such a historic collection of Print-magazine covers. Did my February 1988 American Printer cover story make the cut? It was all about the Muller Martini's PrintRoll system. The content of my article then covered sophisticated, state of the art material handling as seen at Germany's major magazine printing facilities.

The museum is not only a tremendous collection of industry publications, a historic vault of Bibles, printing technology and older presses, and Frank's favorite publishing artifacts and keepsakes, but also a monument to education. A tremendous spot for school field trips, corporate events, and friendly happenings. Plenty of free parking and right off the highway. Well worth checking out. Frank has gone all in to evolve this into a mausoleum for graphic arts professionals. Soooo Impressive!

I like your shirt, with the logo! Where do I get one?
At MOTAT (Museum of Transport and Technology, in NZ) we have a bound book of reproductions of the early Inland Printer, the first few years, which I love to troll through looking at the old adverts. I think I recall an article and comments when the idea of ragged right text was coming into vogue, not welcome by some!
I look forward to your videos each Saturday morning!
