INTRODUCTION

Ethan now concentrates more on the Book Arts and the history of printing. He has recently completed an extensive article on Richard J. Hoffman and is working on other publications and broadsides. He is also planning to collaborate with others onseveral projects. They will be integrated into this website as time permits.

Previous Cal State L.A. leadership positions have included service as the Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs-Planning and Resources; ; Dean of Educational Support Services; Associate Dean of the College of Engineering, Computer Science, and Technology; and Chair of the Department of Technology. After obtaining his B.A. and M.A. from California State University, Los Angeles, Dr. Lipton received his Ph.D. degree in Education (Instructional Technology) from the University of Southern California.

Dr. Lipton has devoted much of his professional career to issues related to technology education, placing a major focus on the growth of each student, improvement and articulation of content, delivery and application. His numerous activities have included involvement in the development and review of state and national standards, service on many California Department of Education committees/task forces and active leadership in industrial and technology professional development. Under his directorship of the Center for Technology Education between 1994 and 2002, he was responsible for providing leadership and coordination of more than $1.5 million of funded projects.

Recognized nationally as one of California’s leaders in technology education and graphic communications, Dr. Lipton is very active professionally having served as President of the International Technology Education Association, as President of the California Industrial and Technology Education Association and as a member of the Technology for All Americans Phase III Project Standards Team, which developed national standards for technological literacy. Dr. Lipton has edited five books, authored more than three dozen articles and papers and has made over eighty professional presentations at national, international and regional conferences. He has helped to develop and implement block articulation programs for many years, providing seamless transitions for students from one education level to the next. He co-developed and disseminated an Industrial and Technology Education Learning Continuum Model that provides and articulates multiple paths and multiple entry/exit points for learners from elementary school through life-long learning. He served as the editor and a contributor for Models and Variables for Articulated Programs in the United States, published in 2002.

Dr. Lipton is the recipient of several prestigious  honors including the International Technology and Engineering Educators Association Humanitarian Award, the Printing Industries Association of Southern California Educator of the Year, the California State University Distinguished Faculty Alumnus, the Distinguished Technology Educator Citation from the International Technology Education Association, the Distinguished Service and Laureate citations awarded by the International Board of Directors of Epsilon Pi Tau, the Distinguished Service Award from the Screenprinting and Graphic Imaging Association International and the Cal State L.A. Engineering and Student Council Outstanding Technology Professor Award.

BOOK ARTS AND PRINTING - In Development

OVERVIEW

Other activities articulated on other web pages include a significant number of presentations, lectures, and workshops at national, international, and regional conferences and courses delivered on a variety of graphic communications and book arts topics including typography, design, traditioinal printing, and digital imaging. Ethan Lipton has designed and/or printed hundreds of projects including books, broadsides, and other emphemera. Images, created using handset type, linotype, typographic elements, photocompositions and digital imaging, have been reproduced using a variety of techniques and equipment using letterpresses, photo offset, screen, and digital processes. Books and broadsides and selected ephemera are listed on this site and some are still available. Unless otherwize noted, the design and production of listed projects was done by Ethan B. Lipton.

WHAT IS FINE PRINTING?

I am in the process of re-examing the meaning of Fine Printing in today's electronic digital age. While I had thought that part of fine printing was defined by the process of letterpress, I am considering that again. While letterpress printing a''ows one to create beautiful printing, is it the only way? Is the kinesthetic effect derived essential?

I once told a colleague that photo offset lithography was a phase and that soon people would see that and return to letterpress. Well, I was half right. Photo offset lithography and photocomposition was a relativelyy short-lived phenomenon but it is being replaced by digital. How long this will last we do not know, but it is here for now and it can be very positive.

​I am also looking into this question because at this time I have neither the strength nor the control to perform all of the letterpress operations well, but I can operate a computer which, with the correct hardware and software, may still give me the opportunity to do fine printing. I know I can design effective evocative typography, but can I reproduce pieces well? Can this be done with limited resources? Can the result be fine printing?

We are dealing with a visual medium and the look is most important. Frederic W. Goudy once said,

"The appearance of the work itself is of more importance than any quibble of its translation into the vehicle of thought, since its legibility and beauty is determined by the eye and not by the means employed to produce the type."
