It is intended here to pay tribute to the printers who have made the history of the manifesto. Most of the time, these are people who have worked quietly and anonymously to make our small works of art. Only very few of them have gone down in history as billboardists, the others are printers, inks, chrome makers, slab sanders, photo-encyclos, or simple workers whose trace has been lost. In some cases they worked very handicraftly in small laboratories, in others they gave rise to Sizecompanies.

Below, therefore, is a summary card that is hoped to further expand with other contributions.
