Despite the importance of books and the written word in Chinese society, the history of the book in China is a topic that has been little explored. This pioneering volume of essays, written by historians, art historians, and literary scholars, introduces the major issues in the social and cultural history of the book in late imperial China. Informed by many insights from the rich literature on the history of the Western book, these essays investigate the relationship between the manuscript and print culture; the emergence of urban and rural publishing centers; the expanding audience for books; the development of niche markets and specialized publishing of fiction, drama, non-Han texts, and genealogies; and more.

Many graphic designers who have a degree course or extensive training behind them have little knowledge of the actual requirements of the printing process. Often afraid to admit it, every time they send a job to the printer they experience a period of nail-biting anxiety because they don't know how it's going to turn out. The book aims to give designers the confidence to do everything necessary to ensure trouble-free, high-quality printing - to calibrate images, both colour and black and white; adjust trapping to appropriate levels in all the major software applications, and mix colours that won't print as something that is a complete surprise. It explains scanning and resolution, and discusses good and bad image formats, describing techniques to make images look good in print - even if they have been downloaded from the internet. There is advice on how to get accurate quotes from a printer, and a checklist to use when sending a job to print.
