Learn about historical book-making tools and processes with hands-on stations where individuals will be able to:

  • imitate type design and type casting using a hand mould
  • assemble moveable type using a composing stick
  • ink and print a book cover on a letterpress
  • fold and bind a quarto booklet to take home

Special guest Kevin M. O’Sullivan, Curator of Rare Books and Manuscripts at Texas A&M Cushing Memorial Library, will be in attendance.

Refreshments will be provided.
