Originally published in 1955, this text has been substantially revised and updated, taking account of the huge technological changes experienced in the printing industry since the 1970s. The coverage includes censorship, bestsellers, popular series, the history of illustration, the invention of lithography, and the connection between printing and education, language and literature. According to Beatrice Warde, the book represents "the five hundred years of printing as a creator of changes in human lives".
