爱诺克布鲁克斯 (Enoch Brooks) 在做工精细的象形文圣经 (Hieroglyphick Bible) 上签名

这本精美象形文圣经是伊赛雅托马斯 (Isaiah Thomas1749-1831。他不是最近那个篮球明星) 所做的65本童书之一。托马斯从学徒时期就开始学习制作印刷。当他17岁的时候,因为已经有一身的好功夫,别人都认为他是一位相当优秀的印刷工人。在他的职业生涯里,托马斯出版了许多畅销的儿童或成人书籍。而托马斯的的印刷技巧也成为促使美国独立的原因之一。他是怎么做到的呢?

A Curious Hieroglyphick Bible is one of 65 children's books printed by Isaiah Thomas (1749-1831) (not the same Isaiah Thomas who was a recent basketball star). Thomas learned about printing as a young apprentice. By the time he was 17, others considered him an excellent printer in his own right. Over the course of a long career, Thomas published numerous popular titles for children and adults. Thomas also made a stand for American independence with his printing skills. How did he do this?
