Early issues of Print are hard to find. They’re not necessarily hard to come by, but have you ever tried googling print? Or entered print into a library database? It’s pointless. When doing research, we often come across references to old articles in Print that would be terribly useful for whatever we’re studying—and that makes sense. When it started way back in 1940, it was the journal of graphic design in the States, a curious hybrid of printing history, graphic design, and printmaking, when all three of those pursuits were carried out by men in white shirts and ties. The contents are varied and not all of the work has held up over time. But every once in a while you’ll have a question about one obscure thing or another, and there’s probably an article in Print that’ll point you in the right direction.
