This pamphlet contains 2 essays awarded a prize for the Best Essay on the Ideal Book, selected from 200 submissions from all over the United States, and seven other countries; the five judges of the essays were Frederic W. Goudy, Frederic G. Melcher, Mitchell Kennerley, A. Edward Newton, and George Macy. The Dill essay outlines for the makers of good books what qualities the purchasers and owners of these books would like to find in their books; Garnett's essay outlines for the buyers of well-printed books the qualities of technique which they have the right to expect the makers of these books to possess. At the time these essays were written, Francis Dill was a student of Porter Garnett at the the Laboratory Press at the Carnegie Institute of Technology. In 1922 Porter Garnett became professor of graphic arts at the Carnegie Institute of Technology in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, teaching traditions, development, and ideals of printing. There, Garnett founded the Laboratory Press, as the only program in the United States for the teaching of fine printing until the press closed in 1935. The Press was the only one dedicated to education in printing as a fine art. In 1932, Garnett was awarded the American Institute of Graphic Arts Medal.
