The Layman Printer. Communication Manual.
Barton, Frank; Lehrke, Gunter
Intended for those responsible for all kinds of publications in developing countries, this booklet has three main objectives: (1) to give the ordinary person who knows nothing about printing or printing processes enough information to be able to deal intelligently with a printer, (2) to show how it is possible for a person or group of persons with no previous experience to set up their own printing operation, and (3) to demonstrate how modest publications from leaflets to small booklets and even rural newspapers serving particular groups of people can be produced. Various sections of the booklet deal with relief block, rubber printing, letterpress, linotype, offset litho, stencil duplicating, dealing with the printer, starting one's own publication, getting quotations, preparing the manuscript, proofreading, and pagination.
