Re: [BKARTS] People's Interests On Book Arts List

I don't think you are right here, many offset printers are getting
rid of their larger presses and gearing up to fast turn-around
smaller format persses, but offset will still be around for the
forseeable, (30-50 year,) future.

AB Dick in the last three years has introduced more new models of
small format presses, (under 14x20 sheet size,) in the last two
years, than they did as two companies (A-M International and AB
Dick,) in the prior five years.

Pagan, Pagan, what are you finding?
Yours is the road that winds lonely and far,
Strange are the shadows that round you come creeping,
Still through the clouds is the glint of a star!
