Write, Set, Print & Sew! — A Spontaneous, Collaborative 8-page Pamphlet
Saturday, September 23 / 10 am – 4:30 pm
Learn how to set type, print letterpress, and deal with kiss-off, dingbats & paper grain. And how to read a pica ruler, pull proofs, make corrections, print, and then to distribute type and spacing. First we vote on a book title and press name for this occasion. Then we work together on a half-title, title, text page, colophon and cover. Finally, we collectively pamphlet stitch our copies. Each participant gets 4 books.
Fee: $150, includes materials. Limit 4 to a class. Please bring your own lunch.
