Print in Britain

I won these issues of Print in Britain on Ebay last week for next to nothing and they arrived this morning. I can't find much out about the publication other than it was "A monthly magazine for everyone in the printing industry", published on Orange Street in London and art directed by J couper.

The earliest copy I have is from July 1955 which is Volume 3, Number 3 so I'm guessing it started in 1953. Most of the issues are in two colours (black and a bright colour) which are used really well throughout. I like the use of the overlay in the spread below.

At least half of the publication is taken up with advertising - there are ads for printing presses, inks, design, typefaces and paper samples which are all great, but here are my favourites:

I particularly like the big numbers, but that goes without saying!

good shop!

it is amazing that you get these publations.

I am looking for one article published in one of the issues, in volume 3, number 5. Is is possible that you have it? I am writing about Crous Vidal and I cant find this article.
I’d appreciate any help…

La Niña Graphics - Thanks for stopping by. Unfortunately number 3 is the only issue I have from Volume 3, but if I come across any others I will let you know. Goodluck.
