The Plantin Press Bibliography
- 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.
