Keep the Presses Running: The Australian Printing Industry in the Twentieth Century

By Benjamin Thorn

Keep the Presses Running describes the Australian printing industry in the twentieth century largely in the words of people who worked in it. In eight years of extensive research, Benjamin Thorn interviewed over seventy informants whose involvement in the industry ranged broadly, and whose recollections and observations reveal its culture, social and economic significance, technical processes and interesting participants. The product of these enquiries is an exceptional repository of information about an Australian manufacturing industry that was and is of major importance, and which has been and remains at the leading edge of technological development.
