Today was the last day I could get into the letterpress studio before the end of the semester. Now I have to wait until the fall before I can go back. Sad. Even sadder was the fact that some nimrod walked off with the Pantone guide, so I had to wing

Last November, I visited the Guild of Book Workers' national exhibition Marking Time. If you happen to be in New Hampshire this week, you'll be able to catch the show in its last days at the Dartmouth College Library in Hanover. When I went to the show, it was actually for
To put it mildly, Dartmouth College has a rocking Book Arts Program. I attended one of their workshops back in February and made a box in a workshop led by Collections Conservator Deborah Howe. The program has both a bindery and a letterpress studio. As I've mentioned before, there's no charge
During one of my evenings of random internet wandering, I became aware of Dartmouth College's Book Arts Program. The mission of the Book Arts Program encompasses the following: Introduce students and other members of the Dartmouth College community to the craft of letterpress printing and hand bookbinding. Promote an understanding of the
