Cameron Book Press Blacks

Kerley "CAM" Book Press Black is a unique line of heatset "letter-flex" blacks specifically intended for the Cameron "belt" book press. Due to the presses' unusual "letter-flex" ink train design and printing configuration, inks for this press must be non-misting heatset inks with excellent drying ability. Few presses are left in the United States, and some have been moved to locations across the world. We have the world's largest variety of inks for this press, all available as "Special Order" items. Call for details.

The Cameron Belt Book Press... a modern marvel of mechanical engineering. Paper and ink went in, and complete, bound book came out the other end. The text and illustrations were encoded on a flexible belt. A complete revolution of the belt results in a complete book.

Right:  Racks which hold the huge printing belt "plates". One revolution of a belt would yield one side of a book. Passing the web of paper through to the second belt would print the other side of the book in a configuration unique to flexo and letterpress printing.
