Letterpress and bookbinding workshop

In collaboration with Shelley of Albertine Press, I will have a two days workshop,
on Saturday and Sunday, August 25th and 26th, in her studio at Somerville, Massachusetts. On the first day, students will learn some basic skill of letterpress printing, by designing, type setting and hand-printing their own edition of bookplates. On the second day, the class will focus on learning the traditional binding method of sewing on tapes, with hand-made paper cover and eight signature text block. A unique feature of this structure is the decorative
attachment of tapes onto the covers, to secure the text pages.


Albertine Press at 561 Windsor Street, Unit #B203 Somerville, Massachusetts.
Down below, some samples of blank books sewn on tapes.
