Things are tough right now ...

They're tough for everyone :( But when coronavirus hit here in the UK, the museum had to close its doors to the public, and we lost practically all our income overnight.

Please Donate Via Just GivingNo visitors, no workshops, no events, no school visits... no income. We know that things are tough for everyone right now, but if you can afford to help us through these tough times please donate what you can.

There's over 36,000 exhibits here! That should keep you occupied for a bit - get searching!

Product Description
This book gives novices an introduction to Postscript--the state-of-the-art ingredient that drives Apple's LaserWriter printer. It also includes practical cookbook examples.

From the Back Cover
PostScript, a revolutionary, device-independent page description language, is quickly becoming the industry standard for printing high-quality integrated text and graphics. It is a powerful, flexible language that has the ability to describe efficiently the appearance of text, images, and graphic material on the printed page.

Using numerous annotated examples and short programs, the tutorial provides a step-by-step guided tour of PostScript, highlighting those qualities that make it such a unique and powerful language. The cookbook offers a collection of some of the most useful techniques and procedures available to PostScript programmers.
