The 65th Penrose Annual was the first to be called the “Graphic Arts International,” and this merging into the future is very much a theme of the articles in Volume 65. The text is a time capsule, a snapshot of the cutting-edge and new media bursting onto the print scene, chronicling advances in photodecomposition techniques, new computer applications, the promises of laser beams and holograms, British comic books, and more; as well as timely discussions about the print industry at this intersection of tradition and technology, such as how to increase newspaper productivity, and an epithet to the original in a more and more multiple world.
