The first edition of the Printing Ink Manual was published by the Society of British Printing Ink Manufacturers in 1961 to fill the need for an authorative textbook on printing technology, which would serve both as a training manual and a reliable reference book for everyday use. The book soon became established as a standard source of information on printing inks and reached its fourth edition by 1988. This, the fifth edition, is being published only five years later, so rapid has been the development in technology. The objective of the Printing Ink Manual remains unchanged. It is a practical handbook designed for use by everyone engaged in the printing ink industry and the associated industries. It provides all the information required by the ink technical for the day-to-day formulation of printing inks. It supplies the factory manager with details of the latest equipment and manufacturing methods, including large-scale production, and gives guidance on achieving quality assessment and total quality management specifications. Care has been taken to maintain the value of the Manual for training both technical personnel and others who requiresome kn- ledge of inks. Readers with little scientific knowledge will not find dif- culty in using the Manual, but sufficient chemistry and physics have been included to provide an explanation of the underlying principles and theories governing the behaviour of inks for use by the advanced te- nologist. Suppliers of raw materials, substrate manufacturers, printers and print users will find the book a valuable source of information.

Vincent van Gogh practiced a variety of occupations, including that of an art dealer and pastor, before deciding to become a painter at the age of 27. During his artistic career, which lasted 10 years - from 1880 to 1890 - he created about 900 paintings and above than 1100 drawings, watercolors and sketches. With sarcasm and irony, in 1890, he defined his own art as a painter with words that it is "of very secondary significance." During his short art-career Van Gogh had sold only one painting. His most excellent paintings were created in no more than 3 years in a method that graduated more and more emotional in brushstroke, in symbolic and powerful colors, in surface tension, and in the movement and vibration of structure and contour. His unique synthesis of form and substance is potent; spectacular, lyrically spontaneous, creative, and expressive. His masterpieces have a variety of uniqueness that have been imitated by many artists but achieved by no one of them.
