Print Is Dead is a dynamic and generously illustrated survey of independent publications that are breathing new life into old media. Interviews with editors, art directors, and founders from each magazine offer background information as well as insight into why they decided to start their publication and the challenges they face. The Modern Magazine explores the issues now facing the publishing industry, examining changes to the basic discipline of combining text and image for the global, Internet-savvy consumer.
 
  Merz To Emigré is an historical survey of avant-garde cultural and political magazines and newspapers all the way from the early twentieth century to the present day. The design of these magazines was as ground breaking as the ideas they disseminated, with many linking to controversial artistic, literary and political movements. Look At This features today’s most disposable literature — brochures and catalogues. This title however, looks at the permanence and organic completeness of this type of communication design that has become more ephemerally important in an increasingly electronic world.

People of Print brings together an array of designers, illustrators and collectives currently committed to the tactility and visible craft of print. An array of work is presented, from posters and flyers to packaging and self-published books, accompanied by profiles of each printer, interviews and innovative design techniques. Impressive is a topical exploration of the interplay between current trends in graphic design and traditional handiwork such as letterpress printing, hand-cut linotype, woodblocks, and embossing.   Low Tech Print examines the recent resurgence in the popularity of printmaking, with chapters on screen-printing, letterpress, relief printing and other printing methods. This book showcases each practitioner’s process behind the hand-made technique and its historical context. Adventures In Letterpress presents edgy, witty designs from 80 unique presses from across the US. As a reaction to the widespread digitisation of art and design, this book will appeal to both designers and craft enthusiasts.
