WINNER OF A NATIONAL JEWISH BOOK AWARD A USA TODAY BESTSELLER "A gifted writer, astonishingly adept at nuance, narration, and the politics of passion."—Toni Morrison Set in London of the 1660s and of the early twenty-first century, The Weight of Ink is the interwoven tale of two women of remarkable intellect: Ester Velasquez, an emigrant from Amsterdam who is permitted to scribe for a blind rabbi, just before the plague hits the city; and Helen Watt, an ailing historian with a love of Jewish history. When Helen is summoned by a former student to view a cache of newly discovered seventeenth-century Jewish documents, she enlists the help of Aaron Levy, an American graduate student as impatient as he is charming, and embarks on one last project: to determine the identity of the documents' scribe, the elusive "Aleph." Electrifying and ambitious, The Weight of Ink is about women separated by centuries—and the choices and sacrifices they must make in order to reconcile the life of the heart and mind.
Sometimes comic, sometimes tragic, this collection turns the rules of storytelling on their head. A series of graphs illustrates the disintegration of a marriage, step by excruciating step. A literary stoush – and an affair – play out in the book review section of a national newspaper. The heartbreaking story of a Rwandan boy is hidden within his English exam paper. A young girl learns her mother’s disturbing secrets through the broken key on a typewriter. Ranging from Australia to Africa to China and back again, The Weight of a Human Heart heralds a fresh new voice in Australian literature. “Stories full of wit, irony, wild invention, love and pain — and sometimes shocking power.” – Paddy O’Reilly “By turns acerbic, playful and serious, O’Neill is equally at home with satire and pathos.” – Cate Kennedy “With each new story O’Neill redefines the boundaries of what is possible” – Patrick Cullen

This book focuses on the chemistry of inkjet printing inks, aswell to special applications of these materials. As iswell-documented, this issue has literallyexploded in the literaturein particular in the patent literature. After an introductory section to the general aspects of thefield, the types and uses of inkjet printing inks are summarizedfollowed by an overview on the testing methods. Special compoundsused as additives dyes, and pigments in inkjet printing inks aredocumented. The applications to the medical field – drug deliverysystems, tissue engineering, bioprinting in particular – aredetailed. The applications in the electronics industry arealso documented such as flexible electronics, integrated circuits,liquid crystal displays, along a description of their specialinks. The book incorporates many structures of the organic compoundsused for inkjet printing inks as they may not be familiar to thepolymer and organic chemists.
Addresses the product quality, waste reduction, and economic issues involved in recycling printing ink in a facility such as The Hartford Courant newspaper in Hartford, CT. The specific unit evaluated is based on the technology of distillation and filtration. The resulting cost saving gave a payback period of about 10 years.
The Printing Ink Manual was first published in 1961 under the auspices of the Society of British Printing Ink Manufacturers with the object of providing an authoritative work on printing ink technology. This, the fourth edition, continues that purpose and presents a comprehensive study of the current 'state of the art' in the ink industry. For those starting in the printing ink industry it is a textbook dealing with all aspects of the formulation and manufacture of printing ink. For the ink technician it is a practical manual and useful source of reference. For printers and users of printed material the manual supplies helpful information on the nature and behaviour of ink both on the printing press and as the finished print. Readers with a little scientific knowledge will have no difficulty in using the manual. but as in previous editions, sufficient chemistry and physics have been introduced to assist the advanced technician and research scientist.
