"Hands are to make things"

Our Letterpress and Bookbinding workshop No. 7 was on last weekend for two intensive days of designing, printing and binding within a nice group of seven people. The result was a limited edition book, hand bound in sewing on tapes, printed in two colors, Marigold and Navy blue. This time I even had the chance to hand set a wood type background, found in the Shelley's type collection and a small sentence printed in darker color. Some inspirations came from a children book by Ruth Krauss, with illustrations by Maurice Sendak:"A First book of first definitions". We had a lovely time working together and keeping our energy up with some delicious Finnish chocolate.
Shelley and I are designing a new workshop to offer in the fall using a great, new book structure and large wood type. Something we need to create more in details, but stay in touch for any update. This past summer class was an inspiring experience, thank you everyone for coming!
