Granjon, the boldest | and most original designer of his time, was one of the first to prac- | tice the trade of typefounder apart from that of printer. Linotype | Granjon was designed by George W. Jones, who based his draw- | ings on a face used by Claude Garamond (ca. 1480–1561) in his | beautiful French books. Granjon more closely resembles Gara- | mond’s own type than do any of the various modern faces that | bear his name. | Composed by Stratford Publishing Services, | Brattleboro, Vermont | Printed and bound by R. R. Donnelley & Sons, | Harrisonburg, Virginia’. [278-280]: blank.

Printing Error on First Cape Edition: Below is an unusual example of a printing error on the first Jonathan Cape edition of Julian Barnes’s England, England. In this book, four pages feature a paper overlay (pp. 71-74), presumably the results of a quality control issue related to the end of a large paper roll  (or the connecting of two rolls) during the printing process. The connecting paper/overlay is of a slightly different, light blue color.
