(Preface) 'COLOUR is the single most exciting, challenging and capricious characteristic of the graphic arts.. The 1966 Penrose finds this an opportunity to bring together an even more dazzling array of illustrations than usual in support of a symposium that considers problems of colour reproduction, inks, control, photography, economics, matching, and motivation.'

'COMPUTERS and their implications for the printing industry cannot be ignored in 1966 and C. J. Duncan, of the University of Newcastle (which has been awarded a research contract of L95,000 by the Ministry of Technology to develop computer applications in printing), follows up his tour de force in the 1964 Penrose with an up-to-date appraisal of this rapidly developing technology.'

'JAPAN, GHANA, AND THE SOVIET UNION each have articles devoted to them and in addition, as usual, Penrose is brimful of international contributions —from Australia, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Hawaii, Holland, Hong Kong, Italy, New Zealand, Poland, Sweden, Switzerland, USA, and Yugoslavia.'

'ELECTROSTATIC PRINTING is both written up (in three articles) and demonstrated, in pursuit of the Penrose policy of suiting the action to the word.'

'THE PENROSE SURVEY Of the most significant developments of the year is a brilliant record and assessment which comes as a tailpiece to the Annual. It will be regarded by many as its most important feature, in spite of the spectacular contributions that precede it; for nowhere else can one find in print such a calm, useful evaluation of the technological upheaval on which the graphic arts and sciences are now embarked. These are only some of the features covered by the twenty-eight articles, 30o pages and zoo illustrations of the 1966 edition of the world's leading review of the graphic arts.'
