History of Printing
0

Hello dear Typophiles. I got my hands on the 1999th edition of [[http://www.amazon.com/A-Short-History-Printed-Word/dp/0881791547|A Short History of the Printed Word]] and kind of like it, however it appears to be very pricy on Amazon. Before buying it I would like to hear your opinions. Is it worth buying or there are better books on the same topic of printing. THANKS!

If you don't mind used books, this resource is invaluable...

Wow... that must be the most re-edited book, like, ever!
