History of Graphic Enterprise Scotland

Pro­fes­sor John Gennard’s book chart­ing the hun­dred year his­to­ry of Graph­ic Enter­prise Scot­land and its pre­de­ces­sor bod­ies, was suc­cess­ful­ly launched at a recep­tion at the Nation­al Library of Scot­land. The author skil­ful­ly por­trays the his­to­ry of the organ­i­sa­tion through its changes of name and a cen­tu­ry of tech­no­log­i­cal progress. It explores the chang­ing rela­tion­ships with the print union and with the print­ing employ­ers’ organ­i­sa­tion based in Lon­don. It will be of inter­est to his­to­ri­ans of twen­ti­eth cen­tu­ry indus­tri­al rela­tions, as well as those inter­est­ed in print­ing his­to­ry.
