Specimens of Printing.
The clearance-card of the Canterbury Typographical Association, of which copies have been sent to us, is a neatly-designed and well-printed piece of color-work, and does credit to the Times job-room.—Messrs W. H. Foden & Co., Timaru, send us a neat and attractive business-card in three colors.—A correspondent sends us a copy of a testimonial, in gold, green, and rose-madder, very well printed on a Main machine, by Mr J. Caygill, at the Union office, Christchurch.
Mr C. Spencer, photographer, of Tauranga, has sent us some very fine prints produced by the heliotype process. They consist of three views of the port of Tauranga, a river scene, and two plates representing native shells. The latter are intended to illustrate a forthcoming work on the subject, and we hope that the letter-press may be equal in quality to the illustrations. The pictures are reproduced with all the softness of shade and perfection of detail possessed by the original photograph. Mr Spencer is prepared to reproduce any negative sent to him, and as he is the only artist in the colony who prints by this beautiful process, he should find a good field for his skill.
