Suggested Reading List

Book printing and book publishing are subjects that require some background knowledge. Fortunately, there are many books available on the subjects. As a print professional serving the publishing market, you will want to understand your target audience. You may also want to make resources available to your customers, should they need them.

Below, you will find my list of basic reading on the subjects. You may want to familiarize yourself with these books. In fact, you may even want to make the books available to your customers; either by providing them a bibliography or by becoming a dealer for one or more of these books. To become a dealer, contact the publisher to purchase copies of their books for resale. Typically, the publisher will offer a 40% discount off the list price. You can sell the books to your customers at full price and create some profit.
