Over the past twenty years, I've had the good fortune to be invited to share some of my interests with a wider audience. Typically delivered as slide talks, these presentations usually center on some aspect of printing: its rich history and lore; how we should be coping with the enormous changes afoot in design and photography, and in the printing trades; and some of the personalities who have had an influence on the design and printing of today.
