MANUAL!

IMG_8727It’s Labor Day, and Printeresting’s new publication Manual has finally arrived! Big thanks to everyone who pre-ordered a copy of the book. They were shipped last week, so if you haven’t received your copy already, keep an eye on your mailbox. The success of the pre-sale comes with some important news: supplies are low! We only have about 80 copies left! As happy as we are with the book, it’s unlikely that we will print more. That means you should act now. If you’re a student and can’t spare the cash, send an email to your school librarian and ask them to buy a copy. It can be a resource for one and all!

But what’s in this Manual, you ask? We’ll give you some examples… Rhonda Ratray investigates the role of printshop infographics and provides an illustrated list of tips for successful signage. Catherine Brooks offers distinctive print shop recipes based on years of experience as a master printer. RL Tillman writes a thought-provoking piece on the versatile author and jack-of-all-trades Manly Banister. Steve Coutinho translates a brief Daoist text about the importance of praxis when mastering a craft. And plenty more critical and creative responses to the idea of the manual. As we’ve said, the book is an open-ended inquiry intended to raise as many questions as answers.

Manual contains a multitude of interesting things to read and look at thanks to the many talented contributors: Diana Behl, Jean-Denis Boudreau, Catherine Brooks, Sarah Kate Burgess, Steve Coutinho, Luther Davis, James Elkins, Sasha Fletcher, Brian Garner, Jon Gourley, Lauren Van Haaften-Schick, James Hannaham, Celine Huyghebaert, Gary Kachadourian, Dave Kyu, Andy MacDougall, Josh MacPhee, Colin Matthes, Leah Modigliani, Rhonda Ratray, Esther K. Smith, Justin Staller, Ryan Standfest & Stephen William Schudlich, Frank Sung, Breanne Trammell, Patrick Wagner, Ericka Walker, Benjamin Wooten, and Adam Wolpa.

Because of the unwieldy logistics of postal distribution, we are only going to be selling them through the site  for the next two weeks! Buy your copy now! We are SOLD OUT!

MANUAL, 8.5″ x 5.5″, Perfect Bound, B&W, 100 Pages, 2014. And again, just to be clear, this book won’t teach you how to print!IMG_8731
