      A new bibliography of Saul and Lillian Marks' Plantin Press has been
      published by the Press of Patrick Reagh (Pat's first publication).

      Of particular interest from the blurb is this:

      "The text is set in English Monotype Bembo and is complemented by
      Alfred Fairbank's lovely Narrow Bembo Italic, a typeface Saul used
      frequently. The book serves as a homage to the Markses in another way:
      it was composed and printed using the original Plantin Press Monotype
      keyboards, caster, matrices and Heidelberg cylinder press. For the
      curiosity of those who claim they can spot the difference, a small
      section of the book was printed using Reagh's normal medium of polymer
      plates with computer typesetting."

      The book is now available from Oak Knoll in two editions.
