Strong Ink

Ink made with a powerfully binding varnish, so as to prevent the separation of the colouring matter and the spread of the varnish in the paper. It is usually made with superior colouring materials, and more care taken in grinding it than with common ink. See Engravings On Wood; Fine Presswork; and for more details I refer the reader to my treatise on the Preparation of Printing Ink.
