Leonard Shatzkin, American publishing consultant. Applied for a patent for a system and method for automatically controlling inventory in retail selling situations. Member American Institute Graphic Arts (treasurer 1952-1959), Trade Book Clinic, Christian Literature Association, Publishers Round Table, Tamiment Institute, Amnesty International. New York City, 1960-1963; director manufacturing, McGraw-Hill Book Company.

Leonard Shatzkin’s "In Cold Type" explores the reasons behind the publishing crisis of that time. Shatzkin not only saw what was, he also what could be, and offered new solutions that helped the book industry overcome its malaise. Neither an essay about the perils of the best-seller list syndrome nor a bland sociological study, "In Cold Type" is a sharp critique of exactly what was wrong with the nuts and bolts of publishing and the ingrained attitudes that resisted change and reform. His solutions were immediate, practical, and necessary, and many of his insights, particularly about inventory management and standardization ultimately revitalized the publishing industry.
