Taylor, Laurie N., 1978- author
Washington, DC : Association of Research Libraries, [2017]
"This SPEC Kit gathers information on the breadth of practice taking place at the intersection of research libraries, presses, and publishing, and on the blurring of boundaries as libraries engage in publishing and press activities in new ways. It explores which activities are associated with library publishing, the level of library/publishing/press integration and collaboration with or creation of formal publishing/press operations, and the organizational structuring of these activities and programs. It includes examples of publishing service options, press staffing, publishing information for authors and editors, and publication lists."--Publisher's website.

Human operators : a critical oral history on technology in libraries and archives
edited by Melissa Morrone
Sacramento, CA : Library Juice Press, 2018
"A collective oral history covering many of the issues in technology in librarianship in the early 21st century. Via edited and compiled interview transcripts, readers get to "hear" the voices of librarians and archivists discussing tech topics from perspectives that are critical, social justice-oriented, feminist, anti-racist, and ecologically-minded. This readable, conversational book aims to bring out specific critiques of technology as well as more inspiring aspects of what's going on in the instructional, open source, free culture, and maker worlds in the field. The book is less about the technology per se and more about critical thinking around technology and how it actually works in people's lives"--Publisher.

History of the phototypesetting era
Romano, Frank J., author
San Luis Obispo, CA : Graphic Communication Institute at Cal Poly, [2014]
"Typesetting was simultaneously a process, a machine, a person, a service, and an industry. It was manual, mechanical, automated, and electronic -- and almost all of these methods overlapped over 50 years. The phototypesetting era began in 1945 with Higgonet and Moyroud established the basis for electro-mechanical phototypesetting. The roots of phototypesetting go back to the 1930s when the first patents were filed by Intertype, Monotype, and others to adapt mechanical typesetters to photographic typesetting. One can even go back to the early 1900s when photographic typesetters were envisioned. The last phototypesetter was manufactured in the late 1980s as laser imagesetters and CTP replaced them. This book covers the almost 400 models of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd generation phototypesetters and ends in 1985. It is a time capsule of a bygone era."--Back cover.

Designing English : early literature on the page
Wakelin, Daniel, 1977- author
Oxford : Bodleian Library, University of Oxford, 2018
Making space for English -- Making pages -- Pages for reading -- Decorating pages -- Pages for voicing -- English in space.

"How did scribes choose to arrange the words and images on the page in each manuscript? How did they preserve, clarify and illustrate writing in English? 'Designing English' is an overview of eight centuries of graphic design in manuscripts and inscriptions from the Anglo-Saxon to the early Tudor periods. Working beyond the traditions established for Latin, scribes of English needed to be more inventive, so that each book was an opportunity for redesigning. 'Designing English' focuses on the craft, agency and intentions of scribes, painters and engravers in the practical processes of making pages and artefacts. It weighs up the balance of ingenuity and copying, practicality and imagination in their work. It surveys bilingual books, format, ordinatio, decoration and reading aloud, as well as inscriptions on objects, monuments and buildings. With over ninety illustrations, drawn especially from the holdings of the Bodleian Library in Old English and Middle English, 'Designing English' gives a comprehensive overview of English books and other material texts across the Middle Ages."--

He writes with honesty and humour about the blunders and revelations of his own bookish life.
