(Preface) 'The new look for THE PENROSE ANNUAL in 1964 received an enthusiastic welcome and this year's volume makes use of the same imaginative formula while offering new and exciting ingredients. The claim of Penrose to be the leading international review of the graphic arts is supported by contributions from France, Switzerland, Germany, Holland, Iceland, Israel, Italy, Japan, China, Spain, and the USA, while graphically Volume 58 is even richer than Volume 57. Nine aspects of education and training in the graphic arts are examined, and over twenty other articles delight the eye, intrigue and inform. These range from richly illustrated articles on fashion in typography, the work of Norman Parkinson, newspaper poster design, and anatomical illustration over five centuries to the exciting technical possibilities of 3D printing and the use of radio-isotopes in printing research. The close integration of text and illustrations makes this volume more compact, manageable, and convenient to use, though it still contains more articles, words, and illustrations than many earlier editions.'
