Four-colour printing

Reproduction of colour by the overprinting of the four CMYK primary colours, a process first requiring that the colours are separated as their own plates are required for the different process colours. See also Duotone.

This definition is extracted (and expanded on) from the book Getting Published: A Companion for the Humanities and Social Sciences by Gerald Jackson and Marie Lenstrup. It was first referred to in the blog Getting Published in a post on pre-press processes at a printing works.
